Azerbaijan, Baku, Feb. 8. / Trend U.Ismayilova/
The Azerbaijani State Land and Cartography Committee has developed an orthophoto map of 65,000 square kilometers of territory in the framework of the World Bank's Real Estate Registration Project in Azerbaijan, Chief Garib Mammadov said at a collegium meeting.
"Orthophoto maps with scales of 1:1000, 1:1500 and 1:10,000, are designed on the basis of aerial and satellite imagery," Mammadov said.
Under the project in 2010, the state committee established a permanent satellite geodetic network of 37 stations which are located throughout the country, as well as developed land cadastre maps of the territory of 4 million hectares.
In July 2007, the Azerbaijani government and the World Bank signed an agreement on a loan of $30 million for the Real Estate Registration Project and its overall value of $38,570,000.
Of that amount, $15 million have been allocated to the State Land and Cartography Committee for the needs of geodesy, cartography, orthophoto maps, and training land management.
The single inventory will boost the real estate market, building an appropriate system of management and use of state property, as well as proper management of real estate registration
The project is approved by the board of directors of the World Bank on March 21, 2007.
