The Dutch experts from the SPATIAL project visited AREC; also workshop was held with users of cartographic products

The Agency for Real Estate Cadaster is implementing the SPATIAL project (Strengthened Professional Access to Information About Land), financed by the Dutch Government, whose goal is to strengthen the capacities of the AREC regarding the establishment of the National Spatial Data Infrastructure (NSDI), the address register and cartography.

The Dutch experts in charge of the relevant cartography visited the AREC in the period from 26th to 28th November. On 27th November they held a workshop with the representatives of the institutions and companies that use topographic maps and other cartographic products. At the workshop, the AREC informed the attendees about the activities that have been completed in the preparation of topographic maps in different scales, about the future plans for operations and the upcoming novelties.

The attendees at the workshop, on the other hand, had the opportunity to present their views about the quality and updating of the topographic maps, for the services offered by AREC, the price policy and such, as well as their needs and expectations regarding the production of topographic maps and other cartographic products.
