The virtual cadastre: the transformation of property management
In today’s digital age, efficient property management has become a vital aspect of managing and planning urban development. The virtual cadastre emerges as an innovative solution that revolutionizes the way property registers are managed.
What is a virtual cadastre?
It is a digitalized and geo-referenced representation of the property records of a given geographical area. This system uses mapping, geolocation and geographic information systems (GIS) technologies to create a detailed and accurate property database. In essence, the virtual cadastre allows access to information on the location, dimensions, limits and physical characteristics of each plot of land in a digital and visual way.
What are the benefits of a virtual cadastre?
The virtual cadastre offers a number of significant benefits compared to traditional property management systems.
- Accuracy and continuous updating: using advanced mapping and geolocation technologies, the virtual cadastre provides accurate and up-to-date data on the property, reducing errors and discrepancies in records.
- Remote accessibility: being available online, it allows remote access to property information from anywhere with an Internet connection, which facilitates data consultation by landlords, real estate professionals and government authorities.
- Process optimization: facilitates real estate transactions and urban development planning by streamlining search, verification and property registration processes.
- Transparency and accountability: it improves transparency and accountability by providing public access to property information in a clear and understandable manner, contributing to more efficient and ethical property management.
- Cost reduction: by eliminating the need for physical records and on-site inspections, this type of cadastre can help reduce the costs associated with property management for both owners and government authorities.
- Spatial analysis: allows advanced spatial analysis, such as identification of land use patterns, assessment of natural hazards and urban development planning, using GIS tools and techniques.
Is hiring a virtual cadastre expensive?
The cost of contracting a virtual cadastre can vary according to various factors. In general, the hiring of a virtual cadastre can be considered a significant investment, but the long-term benefits usually exceed the initial costs.
Size of the area
The larger the area to be mapped, the higher the cost is likely due to the amount of work and data needed to complete the project.
If detailed collection and digitization of complex information, such as property boundaries, topographic features or parcel data, is required, this can increase the cost of the project.
The use of advanced technologies, such as drones, laser mapping systems (LiDAR) or high-resolution satellite images, can increase the initial cost but can provide more accurate and detailed results.
Level of detail required
The more detailed the information required, such as information about buildings, infrastructure or land features, the higher the cost of the project.
Costs may also vary depending on additional services required, such as personnel training, system maintenance, technical support or periodic cadastre updates. It is also necessary to take into account the possible problems that may appear during the process.
