The State Service of Ukraine for Geodesy, Cartography and Cadastre (State GeoCadastre) has announced a tender for the implementation of activities on aerial photographic surveying of Ukraine, as well as the creation of orthophotoplans and digital terrain modeling. All the information collected will come in handy as part of the land reform launch - natural resource inventories and topographic maps will contain accurate territorial data. The Prime Minister of Ukraine Oleksiy Honcharuk emphasized this.
“Ukraine will have high-quality and accurate 3D models of woodlands, production facilities, as well as the classification of buildings, vegetation, power grid and more. Investors will be able to easily design facilities and invest in infrastructure. High-precision data will also be used in the design of the Ukrainian road network, help to effectively irrigate the land. It will also allow to mitigate the effects of floods,” the Prime Minister emphasized.
It’s worth noting, in May this year in the Carpathians Region nearly 400 farms were affected by floods and rains. Due to the aerial photography surveys of the territory, the State will have the necessary resources to prevent such cases.
The total cost of the work makes up about UAH 276 million. The deadline is December 2020.
In addition, in the framework of the preparation for the land reform, the State GeoCadastre has engaged in active filling the database. In 3 months, 6 new information layers have appeared on the public cadastral map. Currently, the data regarding 20.9 million land plots have been reported (total area is 43.8 million ha).
Finally, the State GeoCadastre started to use a satellite land monitoring system in a test mode, and over a week has completed 755 measures of state control over land use and protection (+ 27% as compared to the previous week). As a result, 301 violations of land legislation were found. Moreover, the amount of damage as a consequence of the breaches is over UAH 1 million, of which a UAH 691,720 compensation has been paid voluntarily.
