Training sessions on spatial data for the representatives of the Moldovan Agency for Land Relations and Cadastre
The main beneficiary organisation of the EU-funded Twinning project “Improving spatial data services in the Republic of Moldova following EU standards” – Agency for Land Relations and Cadastre of the Republic of Moldova – continued to implement the planned missions on the pilot project and training sessions in November – December 2022, in cooperation with the experts from Croatian State Geodetic Administration and Faculty of Geodesy from Zagreb University, Croatia. The training sessions are part of the pilot project conducted within the framework of Component 3 of the Twinning project, the aim of which is to prove the applicability of several guidelines in the process of working with spatial data. The topics for 3 training sessions in the last two months included:
- Spatial data geo-referencing,
- Development of spatial data specifications,
- Harmonisation of spatial data.
The participants to the training included representatives from S.E. INGEOCAD, S.E. IPOT, Agency for Public Services / Department of Cadastre, General Inspectorate for Emergency Situations, S.E. State Roads Administration (ASD), S.E. Institute for Forestry Research and Management (ICAS) and Ungheni City Hall. The acquired knowledge consists of: a) techniques and peculiarities of geo-referencing scanned and processed spatial data, b) principles of INSPIRE data specifications and procedure for the development of own data specifications, as well as c) learning how to work with the open-source software Humbold Hale for data harmonisation purposes. The aim of this pilot project exercise is to help Moldovan officials in their daily work with spatial data, resulting in people’s knowledge and capacity building, and a much better quality of interoperable spatial data sets and associated services.
The Twinning project ”Improving spatial data services in the Republic of Moldova following EU standards” is financed by the European Union and implemented by the Agency for Land Relations and Cadastre (ALRC) of the Republic of Moldova in partnership with counterpart organisations from Croatia, Poland and the Netherlands.
