EuroGeographics welcomes new member from Turkey

Jun 3, 2015 -- The General Directorate of Land Registry and Cadastre, Turkey is the latest organisation to become a full member of EuroGeographics. EuroGeographics’ members approved the application at their Extraordinary General Assembly held recently in Belgium which was attended by delegates from more than 23 countries.

As a result, the membership association for the European National Mapping, Land Registry and Cadastral Authorities now represents 61 organisations from 46 countries – the whole of geographical Europe.

Mr Davut Güney, General Director, General Directorate of Land Registry and Cadastre under the Ministry of Environment and Urban Planning, Turkey said: “We share EuroGeographics’ vision of a society which makes decisions informed by accurate, authoritative and quality-assured land and geo-information data, services and expertise. We are currently implementing INSPIRE and value the opportunity to share our experiences.”

Mrs Ingrid Vanden Berghe, President of EuroGeographics said: “We are delighted to welcome Mr Güney and his colleagues to the Association. Our membership continues to grow as organisations recognise the benefits of exchanging expertise, being represented at a range of regional, Europe-wide and global events and participating in important initiatives such as the European Location Framework (ELF) Project.”

Founded almost 170 years ago, General Directorate of Land Registry and Cadastre serves 20 million citizens and carries out 7 million transactions a year. It was also one of the organisers of the World Cadastre Summit, Congress and Exhibition which concluded with the signing of a 22-article Istanbul Cadastre Declaration.

The organisation now joins General Command of Mapping, Ministry of Defence, which has been a full member of EuroGeographics since it was founded in 2000
