RMSI Awarded Huge Irish Land Registry Contract

NEWARK CA, August 24, 2005: RMSI, a global leader in the geospatial information and software services industry, and its consortium partners have won a major data capture mapping contract, with Land Registry in Ireland.

The consortium, which also includes Landmark Solutions, UK, and Proteus Solutions Ltd, Cork and Dublin Ireland, will partner to convert, store and manipulate the Registry’s 32,000 map sheets, which contain an estimated 2.4 million land parcels. The database of maps will link to the corresponding Land Registry folio.

The new five-year contract commenced in June 2005, and will involve converting existing paper map records for over 1.6 million properties into an electronic format as part of the Land Registry’s large-scale Digital Mapping Project. RMSI, which also has offices in the US and UK, expects to hire an undisclosed number of new employees in fulfillment of the large contract.

According to RMSI CEO Ajay Lavakare, “RMSI and our consortium partners are pleased to have won this vote of confidence from the Land Registry of Ireland. We expect the newly digitized data archive to result in significant improvements in the number of applications processed, as well as reductions in transaction and handling times.”

Commenting on the project, Catherine Treacy, Land Registry’s Chief Executive and Registrar of Deeds and Titles, said: “The transfer of all of our records from paper to electronic format marks a significant step in reaching Land Registry’s overall objective of a digital mapping system with the capacity for online geographical searching and browsing of Land Registry titles.”
