The aim and mission of the Cadastre and Land Registry Knowledge Exchange Network (CLRKEN) is to help EuroGeographics members meet user needs for cadastral information at both national and European levels.


The mission and objectives of the CLRKEN are to:

  • maintain a network of cadastral and land registry experts;
  • provide the European platform for networking and sharing best practice;
  • follow the developments of relevant technologies and practices;
  • support EuroGeographics’ policy towards European data interoperability;
  • promote our members’ experiences and expertise;
  • raise awareness of the importance of cadastre and land registry for economic activity and social development;
  • organize workshops in the field of cadastre and land administration;
  • publish reports on issues in the field of land administration.

The CLRKEN focuses on the role of cadastre (documenting land property objects) and land registry (documenting legal rights in properties) and investigates developments that affect these fields.


Topics of interest

Topics that are of interest to the CLRKEN are: core data, address data, public-law restrictions, 3D cadastre, cadastre of underground facilities, organisational issues.

The CLRKEN plans the following activities:

These activities are to be coordinated with other institutions, organisations, and parties active in our field.
