About Kadaster

The Netherlands’ Cadastre, Land Registry and Mapping Agency – in short Kadaster – collects and registers administrative and spatial data on property and the rights involved. This also goes for ships, aircraft and telecom networks. Doing so, Kadaster protects legal certainty. They are also responsible for national mapping and maintenance of the national reference coordinate system. Furthermore, they are an advisory body for land-use issues and national spatial data infrastructures.

Their information is available predominantly through online web services, including information on energy labels of houses and underground cables and pipelines. Their main customer groups are civil-law notaries, local authorities, businesses, financial institutions and private individuals. Kadaster maintains the Key Registers Cadastre and Topography. 

Kadaster performs its public tasks in service of society. This is reflected in the way they are organised and the ways in which they publicly account for how they work.
