The VII Croatian Congress on Cadastre and 10th Workshop on the Land Administration Domain Model

April 2022, Dubrovnik, Croatia

The VII. Croatian congress on cadastre was held this year between March 31st and April 2nd in the Dubrovnik Palace hotel. Covid did not yet allow a completely physical environment - the conference was hybrid - 200 participants onsite and 600 online. Probably the new norm. Although a beautiful and historic setting like Dubrovnik in Croatia does underline the human need to meet and talk directly.

In conjunction with the Congress of Croatian Cadastral Surveyors, the 10th workshop for the Land Administration Domain Model was organised.

An important topic at the Croatian Congress was 'Fit-For-Purpose Land Administration - support for Sustainable Development'. Furthermore, the history and future of the cadastre, land administration infrastructure for smart cities, multidimensional cadastres, land administration, land consolidation, sustainable land policy and technologies for creating and maintaining land registers.

The Land Administration Domain Model is gaining recognition in many countries. Software suppliers are adopting and implementing LADM. The 10th Workshop was in support the development of a second edition of the workshop.

The combination of presentations, lectures, demonstrations and discussions was attractive for the participants.

The Croatian Geodetic Society (FIG member) organised the event - in close cooperation with the Faculty of Geodesy of the University of Zagreb (FIG academic member), the Geodetic State Administration and the Croatian Chamber of Geodetic Engineers (CLGE member) and under the auspices of the International Federation of Surveyors (FIG).

The organisers thank all the speakers and participants for their support!
