Collaboration project - an opportunity within the DRC agreement

Within Lantmäteriet, we carry out many years of work aimed at improving the Property Register, including the quality of the register map.

The DRC agreements include the possibility for the municipality to synchronize property and rights layer with Lantmäteriet 's register map. After a synchronization has been completed, it is possible to start a collaboration project.

Collaboration takes place by both parties assisting with background material, knowledge and time. This is done in equal parts by the parties involved. An agreement is written where the efforts that are to be included in the collaboration are defined.

If a DRC agreement has been signed and you are interested in being part of a collaboration project, you must contact the Regional Geodata Coordinator for your county.

Collaborative projects begin with the municipality prioritizing areas of poor quality. There may be areas with low quality where existing buildings are to be connected to VA, but also other areas where the municipality experiences difficulties with the quality of the property subdivision outside the detailed planning area.
