Czech Republic: Land Registry launches new app for smartphones
The national Office for Survey, Mapping, and Cadastre of the Czech Republic
(ČÚZK) has launched new iOS and Android apps that make it simple to find
authoritative land information wherever you are. Users from the real estate
sector, just one group from the enthusiastic early adopters, predict
immediate time savings when assessing properties – thanks to its simplified
data access.
“Our application is the first one that uses only authoritative map
products,” ČÚZK’s Head of Administration of Geospatial Information, Bohumil
Vlcek said. In so doing, it eliminates the problems faced by current
commercial applications, for example to compose information from
heterogeneous sources that have varying guarantees of quality.
Enthusiastic users of new applications include, amongst others, real estate
agents. “The mobile application is a really positive step because it will
allow real estate agents to assess property faster in the field,” said
Executive Director of the real estate network RE / MAX, Hanus Nemecek.
According to Michael Kresta, Commercial Director of estate agents STING,
the applications will help to better estimate how long it will take to
prepare properties for sale.
In addition to viewing maps via smartphones, users will also be able to
browse and query information about land parcels including determining their
precise coordinates. The application also allows users to search by places
on the map, by registries and databases of geographic names, administrative
boundaries and by address. Using their phones, people will also be able to
search through archival maps held by the Central Archives of Surveying,
Mapping and Cadastre, which are important for example in the current church
restitution proceedings.
The new service can be downloaded for the most widely used smartphone
operating systems: Android and iOS. A Windows Phone 8 application is in
