When we are barely seven years apart from that date for which it was presumed that Catastro Model 2014 It would be an implemented reality we still have great doubts. For at least 5 minutes, give up the privilege of philosophizing about it ... I promise it's only 5 minutes 🙂
If we take a look at the proposals that this model pursues, in simple sentences we will see that confusion usually surrounds about understanding modernization and appreciating regulations; Pretending to say that because our painted maps are better than the printed ones only because they are in digital format is far from believing that we have taken enough steps.
Several mythical efforts have tried, and we do not deny that countries like Mexico, Spain, Argentina they strongly point to territorial management, being very different worlds; but very little progress has been made in writing and legislating on the policies that will govern the management of cadastres at an exaggeratedly virtual level. Among these gaps we could mention:
- Legal framework Outdated
- Imbalance between Policies, standards and data
- Lack of standardization Of spatial data
- Difficulty in certification of technicians and users to the rhythm of technology ... and politics
- Limits on access to connectivity… decent
- Slow progress in decentralization And transparency
Well, what were those approaches of Cadastre 2014
1.Full legal status of the territory
At least countries have modernized their articles of civil code where lawyers wrote a hundred years ago on management of easements, strips of protection of rivers, goods for public use, protected areas? Because this proposal does not talk about having the maps, but the relevant legislation to the affectation between the different topological layers.
2.No separation between maps and records
... that meant we said goodbye to those elders who knew so much about cartography just because they were afraid of ARCview?
3.Cadastre management in automated form
Wanting to take the procedures to digital formats ... does not solve things. Convert those procedures into orderly practices, under the management of government entities that politicize their actions ... mmm
4.The manual cadastre will be a thing of the past
…OK! we have one and five five.
5.High involvement of the private sector
... with the rhythm of decentralization in Latin America ... who knows ... let's not say if Hugo Chavez puts his nose.
6.Cost recovery trends
ups, what costs were we talking about? It is possible that there are misconceptions between what is useful and what is “Multipurpose“So, as long as we do not guide the process towards the involvement of entities in integrated territorial management, cost recovery will be difficult.
