e-infrastructure Roadmap for Open Science in Agriculture

A bibliometric study

The e-ROSA project seeks to build a shared vision of a future sustainable e-infrastructure for research and education in agriculture in order to promote Open Science in this field and as such contribute to addressing related societal challenges. In order to achieve this goal, e-ROSA’s first objective is to bring together the relevant scientific communities and stakeholders and engage them in the process of coelaboration of an ambitious, practical roadmap that provides the basis for the design and implementation of such an e-infrastructure in the years to come.

This website highlights the results of a bibliometric analysis conducted at a global scale in order to identify key scientists and associated research performing organisations (e.g. public research institutes, universities, Research & Development departments of private companies) that work in the field of agricultural data sources and services. If you have any comment or feedback on the bibliometric study, please use the online form.

Impact of Cadastre on Economic Growth


Modern land administration systems support efficient land markets and effective land use management and are fundamental to prosperous society and therefore is key element addressing the current economic crisis. Therefore it is important that in the country is established land registration system what supports governance in sustainable development, provides all security of tenure and real property rights, facilitates real estate investments and transactions an ensure effective and transparent property valuation, land-use planning and sustainable land development. Future is for demand driven cadastre development thereby is necessary to be aware what does a user need for sustainable development decisions - reliable data, full data coverage of a country, standardized data formats, easy access (web services, open data), information about the data (actuality, resolution etc.), interoperable data. A lot of information, which can be used for these actions, can be taken from existing information systems maintained by corresponding responsible land administration authorities, i.e. State Land Service in Latvia, National Land Service under the Ministry of Agriculture of the Republic of Lithuania, State Enterprise Centre of Registers in Lithuania, etc. These information systems now are being used to promote operative ensuring of people, businesses, public administrations with actual, reliable, mutually integrated and high-quality data for real property management and related processes, including real property formation, cadastral survey of the land and buildings, real property registration, spatial planning, land use and land management, administration of real property tax, construction, organisation of public services and facilities. This information is essential for planning of real property acquisition or alienation, carrying out business activities related to real properties and their objects - development of infrastructure, construction, site development, etc. Almost every decision made in our day-to-day or working life has a spatial component. 80% of all decisions are based on spatial data. For instance, by planning of new industrial area is necessary to know not only the information related to construction, topography of surface, soils, electrical power, etc., but the structure of surrounding real properties for modelling how industrial area will affect their future use, too.
