Promoting the legalization and regularization of land rights and property ownership is a strategic goal of Angola’s government. Based on parcel boundaries determined by expert surveyors, Geodata devised and built a nationwide cadaster system. Covering some 350 square kilometers, its database includes 400,000 parcels (land boundaries with digital coordinates), high resolution aerial imagery and detailed photogrammetric mapping, as well as street
and house addresses and geolocated historical maps and documents.
Geodata developed a unique Cadaster system that provides users with advanced editing and quality control tools and the ability to distribute cadaster data via a web-based GIS system. It provides Angola with the basis for a nationwide land management system to help with development and decision making.
