What data is expected?

Data should include maps of lands with parcel layer and display parcel boundaries in addition to a land registry with information on transactions of parcels of land. The assessment criteria were developed in collaboration with Cadasta Foundation. For more information on land ownership datasets and where they're located, see Cadasta Foundation's Data Overview](http://cadasta.org/open-data/overview-of-property-rights-data/).

  • Types of cadastre
  • Transaction history of parcel
  • Parcel boundaries
  • Parcel location
  • Data available for the entire country
  • None of the above
