About the Danish Geodata Agency
Recording of real estate in Denmark and nautical charts concerning Denmark, Greenland and the Faroe Islands.
The Danish Geodata Agency was established on 1 January 2016 and is a part of the Danish Ministry of Energy, Utilities and Climate. The agency is responsible for the recording of real estate in Denmark and nautical charts concerning Denmark, Greenland and the Faroe Islands.
The Danish Geodata Agency is responsible for the recording of real estate in Denmark and the national Cadastre, which forms the legal basis for the sale, mortgaging, valuation and taxing of real estate in Denmark.
Furthermore, the agency is responsible for conducting hydrographic surveys and producing nautical charts for navigation within leisure sailing and shipping in Danish, Greenlandic and Faroese waters. This includes responsibility for the sale and distribution of marine data and products concerning Denmark and Greenland.
Collaboration across the public sector
Within both real estate and the maritime sector the agency focuses on promoting collaboration across the public sector with a view to providing citizens and companies with the best possible service and facilitating efficient problem solving across the public sector. The agency is, among other things, responsible for the establishment of a Danish maritime infrastructure (MSDI), which will enable authorities to coordinate activities and optimise the use of the sea and its resources, benefitting both the economic development and the marine environment. Within real estate some of the agency’s work falls under the Basic Data Programme, including Matriklens udvidelse and Ejerfortegnelsen.
The Danish Geodata Agency in Aalborg
As part of the government plan “Bedre balance – statslige arbejdspladser tættere på borgere og virksomheder” (“Better balance – state jobs closer to citizens and companies”) as of 1 January 2016 the former Danish Geodata Agency was divided into two separate agencies: a new Danish Geodata Agency, which is located in Aalborg, and a new Danish Agency for Data Supply and Efficiency, which is located in Copenhagen.
