Social and political changes that took place in year 2000 in Serbia had positive effects on the development and liberalization of the geodetic services market. The change of legislative framework regulating the geodetic field gave boost to the private initiative and restructuring of geodetic specialists, transferring from public to private sector. Through separation of authorities, a partnership relation was established between the national geodetic authority and the private geodetic organizations providing both with clearly divided jurisdictions. The World Bank loan aimed at establishment and modernization of real estate cadastre and other donor and investment projects directly supported the above described development trend. The paper gives an outline of the existing situation regarding the development of geodetic services market in the Republic of Serbia, and in particular provides the analysis of the development of private geodetic companies following the newly introduced changes.
