Belgium National Cadastre Chooses ArcGIS and Survey Analyst as Platform

The Belgian Ministry of Finances, Administration of Cadastre, Registration and Domains, has awarded Esri BeLux a contract for the delivery of hundreds of software licenses for cadastral use based on Esri's ArcGIS 8.3 and ArcGIS Survey Analyst software. The system will be deployed in all the local offices across the country.

Within the framework of its master plan for informatics, the Ministry of Finances intends to computerize its cadastral map production (CADMAP) to expedite the 200,000 modifications that are made annually to the database. During the first phase, the vectorized cadastral maps will be managed with the new tools. At the same time, the geometric quality will be cross-checked and significantly improved. The final goal is to evolve toward a real enterprise GIS environment.

Michel Dechef, general auditor of finances at the Ministry of Finances, says, "As we want to evolve toward a true GIS-based cadastral system, we felt most confident with the solutions proposed by Esri BeLux. Through the introduction of this system, the Belgian Cadastre will significantly enhance the service delivered to the Belgian public."

Esri BeLux will assist the Belgian Cadastre in implementing its software infrastructure and looks forward to its evolution into an integrated GIS solution.
