Webinar "Data Interoperability: The benefits for the Land Administration sector"

24 June 2022

Time: 10-12 a.m. (CEST)

Platform: WebEx - WebEx User guide for the webinar


FAIR data are data which meet principles of findability, accessibility, interoperability, and reusability.

The FAIR Data Principles make data more valuable as it is easier to find through unique identifiers and easier to combine and integrate. The public sector can apply the FAIR principles to improve access to better location data which is available to more people.

Using these principles to drive and guide data improvement can enable and promote easier use of data, helping to drive innovation, increase productivity and reduce costs, benefiting a country’s economy and wider society.

In many jurisdictions, different parts of government adopt or create standards for recording, managing, using and sharing data. This can mean that data exchange and reuse is difficult or prevented.

One of the impacts of the pandemic has been an acceleration in the demand for online digital services and access to digital data. As land administration and management organizations transform, providing innovative solutions to meet market needs, the challenge of providing uniform, accessible and usable data becomes more apparent.


Case studies were presented by the United Kingdom, followed by a panel discussion. Experts in land administration and management were invited to join this discussion to explore what the benefits and opportunities are, how challenges have been overcome and what the longer-term implications might be.

Questions for panel debate:

  1. Why is a comprehensive digital profile for each property important?
  2. If all property data could be accessed, exchanged and used electronically, what impact would that have?
  3. How important is it to develop common protocols and standards?
