April 09, 2008 -- From 29th April to 1st May at the Radisson SAS Hotel, Stansted Airport, UK, 1Spatial’s 2008 Conference: 1 Source of Truth’, will be providing an educational forum for the geospatial industry. The Conference will feature a number of activities, including hands-on workshops, and showcase cross-border programmes such as the European Land Information Service (EULIS).
EULIS is a consortium of European National Land Registers including countries such as Sweden, the Netherlands, England, Ireland and Norway. Together, the countries currently forming EULIS cover a landmass of more than 1,500,000 square kilometres, hold details of more than 39,000,000 registered properties and register more than 5,600,000 total property transactions every year. The programme gives organisations the ability to search all of this information online through a single, Internet-based, portal.
Ted Beardsall CBE, Deputy Chief Executive of Land Registry of England and Wales, will be presenting on the topic of The EULIS Service’ on Thursday 1st May as one of the Conference’s keynote speakers. Mr Beardsall commented:
"EULIS has demonstrated what can be achieved when European nations co-operate and are backed by the EU. EULIS will promote cross-border provision of the largest and emotionally most compelling financial transaction that European citizens experience."
Graham Stickler, Product and Marketing Director for 1Spatial commented:
"This is an exciting time of change in our industry and we are delighted to be able to provide such a comprehensive agenda programme for our delegates to learn about and be involved in the issues currently facing us. We are also pleased to be able to educate and inform the market place about initiatives like EULIS that will affect us personally, as well as professionally. 1Spatial is working with several of the EULIS members across Europe, notably with Property Registration Authority Ireland on the award-winning DMapS project."
