Cadastral Data Can Now be Retrieved from the Data Distributor


From June 29th 2018, a significant part of the data in the Danish Cadastre Register will be available on the Data Distributor. The remaining property data will be made available during spring 2019. The Danish Basic Data Programme has thereby reached yet another milestone.

Cadastral registrations of the “Cohesive real property” type are now available on the Data Distributor. (The Data Distributor is a “one-stop-shop” for access to basic data from selected public basic data registers in Denmark). These data consist of maps showing cadastral boundaries as well as register data with descriptive basic data about the property and its land parcel. A new feature is that properties in the establishment phase are now also displayed. This enables users, at an early stage, to retrieve data about new properties during registration.

In spring 2019, the Cadastre will be considerably extended with data about condominiums and “Building on leased land” from the Land Register and the municipal property register (ESR). This means that the Cadastre will become the common basic data register for all real property in Denmark.

Collecting data on all property types in the Cadastre is a key project in the Basic Data Programme’s endeavours to achieve standardised, high-quality public-sector data that can be used by the public administration as well as in the private sector. In the real-property domain in particular, this will result in significant changes in the data basis.

An important step for the Basic Data Programme

Launching the first services from the Cadastre marks a milestone in the development of the Data Distributor. The Data Distributor already displays data from the Civil Registration System (CPR), Denmark’s Address Register (DAR), the Danish Administrative Units register (DAGI), ‘Danish Place Names’ (Danske Stednavne), the Central Business Register (CVR), the GeoDanmark data set, and the public assessment of real property value (VUR).

In the spring, users will also be able to retrieve property data stored in the Building and Housing Register(BBR), the Property Ownership Register, and the Property Location Register from the Data Distributor. The phased launch of property registers was agreed on by the all stakeholders in the public sector in order to reduce the level of complexity and risk in the real-property domain, where major development projects are currently being implemented.
