Land acquisition limit extended
21 December 2010

The European Commission has granted Hungary the extension of transitional period for the acquisition of agricultural land. „This decision is a significant success of the Hungarian agricultural diplomacy. The past half year has gone with reconciliations; I had several discussions with the representatives of the Commission and the ministers of the Member countries, and explained our arguments for the extension” – stressed the Hungarian minister of rural development, who received the good news during the meeting of the Council for Environmental Protection in Brussels.  “My colleagues and the experts have prepared an excellent documentation in which they underlined: without extension, serious disturbances would develop in the agricultural land market. Under the existing circumstances, the liberalisation of the land market would open wide space for speculative land acquisitions that would cause further decrease of competitiveness of the Hungarian agricultural producers.”

Fusion of Budapest Land Offices
14 December 2010

The Budapest District Land Office No. 2 (1134 Budapest, Váci út 9-15.) will be closed down with succession of title on 31st December 2010. From 3 January 2011 on, also land affairs of the IV., V., VI., és XIII. districts can be arranged in the Budapest District Land Office (currently No. 3. at 1149 Budapest, Bosnyák tér 5.), which will function from 3 January 2011 under the name  Budapest District Land Office No. 2. Consequently it means that instead of the currently existing three district land offices of Budapest only two will manage the land affairs in the future: No. 1 in Buda, (1111 Budafoki út 59) and No. 2 in Pest (1149 Bosnyák tér 5).

Obligatory cutting of ragweed
05 July 2010

On 30th June was the deadline of the obligatory first cutting of ragweed. It means that on 1st of July, the land offices and the public notaries can start checking in both rural and built-up areas. In line with the governmental decree, the fine imposed upon those land owners who missed the obligatory prevention may be HUF 15000 to 5 million. But because of the floods and increased inland water caused by the extraordinary precipitation of the past period, it is almost impossible to cut down the ragweed. The owners were not able to carry out the especially important spraying in large areas of many hundred hectares as the land became inaccessible.
Considering all these, Sándor Fazekas, Minister of Rural Development ordered the land offices to organize and perform on-the-spot inspections in a way that allows them to visit and identify first of all the uncultivated land parcels and stubble-fields.

Cadastre iNSPIREd!
11 March 2011

Cadastre iNSPIREd! – Project, an active cooperation of the Permanent Committee on Cadastre (PCC) and EuroGeographics Knowledge Exchange Network on Cadastre and Land Registry has delivered its report, so the project successfully finished. Cadastre INSPIREd!” is the title of a joint Working Group and project of the Permanent Committee of Cadastre of the EU (PCC) and EuroGeographics. The main focus is to investigate INSPIRE themes of Annex II and III which are relevant for the cadastre e.g. land cover, buildings and Orthoimagery. The objective of the project is a classification of the importance and relevance of cadastral information to these themes, and to contribute to the development of the INSPIRE- Data specifications.
Based on the successful results of the former “WG-CPI” project “Role of the cadastral parcel in INSPIRE”, the final report was a main reference document for the INSPIRE data specification for cadastral parcels.
The project took a similar approach with an additional survey in the Member States providing the input and for the following INSPIRE processes to underpin the role of the cadastral parcel as an essential element in national and the European Spatial Data Infrastructure (ESDI).
The screening (analysis) of the INSPIRE themes in Annexes II and III was focusing on those themes which are part of the cadastral information and/or are strongly connected to it. The identification as well as the prioritisation of the themes finally resulted in Land cover (Annex II), Land use (Annex III), Buildings (Annex III) and Orthoimagery (Annex II). Based on a questionnaire the working group made a successful survey in all the member states of the PCC and EuroGeographics and finally 32 European countries (including 26 members states of the EU) replied.

A Tale of Many Cities
07 March 2011

What do the cities of Prague, Pisa, Florence and Padua have in common? Why might you want to be in Edinburgh and Cambridge, but not at the same time? Why is Budapest in the news? For the answers, read what our observer, Robin Waters has to say on this and other geo matters as Hungary assumes the EU presidency.
Europhiles will know that it is Hungary’s turn to hold the Presidency of the EU. This role has less significance since the creation of a permanent President of the Council of Ministers, but still enables each country in turn to set the agenda for six months and to ensure that its own priorities are recognised. Spain, Belgium and Hungary have also formed a unique “trio” to agree a common agenda through the whole of the 18 months of their successive presidencies.

SDI activities in Hungary
09 November 2010

The Institute of Geodesy, Cartography and Remote Sensing (FÖMI) as a part of the Hungarian Land Administration sector has a key role in Hungarian Spatial Data Infrastructure (SDI). FÖMI’s activities (e.g. GNSS services, Geodynamics research, Operation, Support and Development of Unified Land Registry IT systems, Remote Sensing activities, Data Services, Topographic mapping) cover an important, large part of national SDI. Active participation in international (mainly EU funded) projects is an important resource to increase the number and quality of services for citizens and national SDI.

Message of EuroGeographics
25 October 2010

On the occasion of celebrating the 10th anniversary of the foundation at the General Assembly held 10-13 October 2010, Herman Van Rompuy, President of the European Council has recognised EuroGeographics’ members for their ‘invaluable’ commitment to making geospatial data more accessible and readily available across the European Union (EU).  Opening the 2010 General Assembly in Brussels, Mr Van Rompuy told heads from national mapping, land registry and cadastral agencies that geographical information is crucial for effective policymaking. He said: “Effective policy depends on good information, and in such a geographically diverse Union it is vital that we understand not just what is happening, but where it is happening. This information needs to be readily available to policymakers at all levels so that the European Union, and the countries within it, can use geospatial data to improve the lives of citizens, the environment and the strength of our economy.”
