Eptisa will develop a Real State Registry Information System (SIRI) in Costa Rica

The SIRI is aimed to the use and integrated administration of cadastre information and its relation with all the registry data of the lands of the country

November 21 2012

The government of Costa Rica signed a loan agreement with the Inter-American Development Bank to financing the Cadastre and Registry Regularization Program with the aim of develop a cadastre of all existing lands in the country, properly georeferenced, integrated and combined with the Costa Rican Real Estate Registry.

As part of this program, the consortium formed by Eptisa and Blom will carry out the development, set up and maintenance of the Real State Registry Information System (SIRI), to achieve the following objectives:

Main objectives:

  • To guarantee the maintenance of the real state information
  • To guarantee that the base of the real state information will be the data of the National Registry and will operate inside the national spatial data infrastructure

Secondary objectives:

  • Reduce human and technological costs
  • Increase incomes
  • Reduce the volume of rejected documents for the Land Surveyors
  • Decrease the user response time
  • Offer a quality, reliable, accessible and real-time information
  • Increase the clients base

The Real State Registry Information System (SIRI) is aimed to the use and integrated administration of cadastre information and its relation with all the lands of the country, with an open system, in such a way that its future growth won’t be conditioned by a hardware or software platform. The SIRI’s information will be accessible for different state institutions, such as for example the municipalities and professional (Land Surveyors, Notaries, Judge, Registrars, Technical Consultants, Coordinators, Administrators) and citizens. The SIRI will provide a tool to assign and monitor the workflow to optimize the tasks of the staff of the Cadastral Division of the Real State Registry.

The Real State Registry Information System (SIRI) will have three main subsystems:

  • The Cadastral Information System (SIC) based on a Geographic Information System (GIS), with the geographic and topographic information of the Cadastre
  • A interface with the Building Assets System (SBI) which includes information of property (alphanumeric and legal)
  • The Interfaces System (SI) which integrates both and offers to SIC users a unified and consistent viewer of the physical and legal descriptions of all lands.

With the SIRI is expected to resolve the different types of inconsistencies between the real state registry and cadastre, such as for example the overlay or duplicate of cadastral parcels on the map, land zones which can’t be located in the fieldwork or differences between the registered area and the cadastral area.
