EuroGeographics Welcomes Land Registration Authorities from Malta and Scotland as New Members

Applications from the Malta Land Registry and Registers of Scotland were approved by members of the Association for European National Mapping, Cadastral and Land Registry Authorities at their 2017 Extraordinary General Assembly. As a result, EuroGeographics now represents 63 organisations from 46 countries.

 

Mrs Sheenagh Adams, Keeper of the Registers of Scotland, said: “EuroGeographics offers a host of opportunities for collaborating to find solutions to common challenges. We are particularly looking forward to participating in the Knowledge Exchange Networks and discussing issues of mutual interest.”

 

Mr John Attard, Head of the Malta Land Registry added: “Sharing best practice is vital in the field of land registration where changing technology, such as crowd sourcing and real-time reporting, is impacting on activities. EuroGeographics provides a valuable forum for reflecting these emerging trends and exchanging experiences and expertise.”

 

Mrs Ingrid Vanden Berghe, President of EuroGeographics said: “It is a privilege to represent members from every country in geographical Europe and we are delighted to welcome the Malta Land Registry and Registers of Scotland to the Association.”

 

“European National Mapping, Cadastre and Land Registry Authorities fulfill a unique role by providing definitive, detailed map and land information. As their membership association, we are committed to supporting them as they improve access to this rich source of data to drive applications that deliver very real benefits to Europe, and to ensuring that their responsibilities, capabilities and concerns are understood.”
