June 21, 2013 -- Three new organisations have joined EuroGeographics which means the Association now represents 59 National Mapping, Cadastral and Land Registry Authorities from 46 countries.
Her Majesty’s Land Registry Great Britain and two organisations from the Republic of Azerbaijan - the State Committee on Property Issues, the Real Estate Cadastre and Technical Inventory Centre and State Land and Cartography Committee have all become members. In addition, the National Agency of Public Registry, Georgia has upgraded from an associate to full membership.
“Our continued growth demonstrates the value national mapping, cadastral and land registry authorities place on collaborating to find solutions to common challenges,” says EuroGeographics’ President, Ingrid Vanden Berghe. “Sharing expertise and best practice is vital in helping members to meet the continuing demand for authoritative pan-European geo-information.”
The four organisations were officially voted members of EuroGeographics at a recent meeting in Leuven, Belgium. During the two-day event, representatives heard more about the Association’s activities and plans for the future.

Connecting you to the authoritative geo-information framework for Europe
EuroGeographics is an international not-for-profit organisation (AISBL/ IVZW under Belgian Law. BCE registration: 833 607 112) and the membership association for the European National Mapping, Land Registry and Cadastral Authorities. It brings together 59 members from 46 countries, from Portugal to the Ukraine and Iceland to Turkey.
EuroGeographics’ members invest around €1.5 billion in the development of geographical information each year and use cutting-edge technology to create, manage, maintain and make available authoritative national databases. Together, they are developing an infrastructure to integrate their national data – including topographic and land information – to deliver the definitive pan-European location framework for a wide range of uses.
By sharing best practice and creating standard data specifications and policies, EuroGeographics aims to ensure that members’ individual geographical databases are compatible and can interact with one another. This will provide Europe with the high quality geographical information it needs to develop policies and legislation for the environment, business competitiveness, public services, legal systems, security and more.
