The Kadaster St. Eustatius is a Land Registry and Mapping Organization that collects and registers administrative and spatial data on property and the rights involved. In doing so, Kadaster protects legal certainty. We are also responsible for national mapping. Furthermore, we are an advisory body for land-use issues and national spatial data infrastructures.
Our main customer groups are civil-law notaries, local authorities, businesses, financial institutions and private individuals.
Kadaster performs its public tasks in service of society. This is reflected in the way we are organized and the ways in which we publicly account for how we work.
It is Kadaster’s statutory task to maintain a number of registrations. Examples are the registration of real estate, topography, ships and aircraft.
Information provision is another key task of ours. The information products from the registrations and national facilities come in various shapes and forms, such as: data files, formal documents or maps. Clients are able to acquire them through personal contact, by phone or through the Internet.

Besides information from its own registrations, Kadaster also provides information from registrations of other parties. For them, we maintain so-called national facilities, by means of which we provide access to the data. Examples are the facilities for addresses and buildings, cables and pipelines, and energy labels.
We also provide customized work and advice, predominantly to authorities. This refers to data selections and aggregations. Authorities obtain customized information which helps them develop spatial planning policies.
Kadasters plan for reaching out its goals lays down in its Long-term Policy Plan. The plan is publicly available, it is updated every year. Also, every year, Kadaster publicly accounts for the results it was able to reach in its Annual Report.
