Professional and reliable spatial data in Macedonia

In February, the Macedonian Agency for Real Estate Cadastre (AREC) and Kadaster signed a cooperation agreement. A first project was launched with support of the Netherlands Enterprise Agency. Its focus: updating the strategy of the geoportal and the topographical map. This will improve access and availability of reliable spatial data to the public sector as well as the private sector and citizens of Macedonia. Data and services can be made available in an efficient, effective and harmonised way. This contributes to economic growth and sustainable development in Macedonia. “In the past seven years AREC has established a good relation with Kadaster. Their experts have contributed to the further development of the AREC-activities, in particular: digital map production, implementation of large IT-projects and development of the NSDI Strategy. Kadaster’s  experience as important player in the development of NSDI in the Netherlands and at EU-level supported AREC in preparing a national strategy on SDI”, according to Mr Slavce Trpeski, Director General of AREC.
