Bulgaria’s Cadastre Agency is preparing a digital informative system that would be used for the drawing up of the real estates maps. A cadastre map to comprise 8% of Bulgaria’s territory is now ready. It emerged from a seminar of the agency on Sunday. The Cadastre agency has already digitalized its database for tillable lands and woods and is about to draw up their maps. Some 70% of the information for the real estates in Sofia has already been digitalized. The cadastre maps and registers for five pilot regions are ready – those include Assenovgrad, Balchik, Dupnitsa, Samokov and Smolyan. The land mapping is part of Bulgaria’s commitment to the EU to establish an integrated system for administration and control. Under the latest EC Comprehensive Report of October 2005, Bulgaria should be able to meet the obligations of membership at the envisaged date of accession, provided that it steps up its efforts to that end in a number of areas, including agriculture, by strengthening the administrative capacity. The mapped lands will be then digitally processed and systemized in a digital map. Then a vectorisation – outlining physical land blocks – will be carried out.
