    • stakeholder requirements;
    • data stewards;
    • costs;
    • work flow;
    • data transfer mechanisms;
    • update frequency; and
    • maintenance frequency;

Current Activities:

The Board of Examiners for Surveyors has ruled that the submission to municipalities of digital copies (i.e. vector lines) of parcel maps and as-built information is to be prohibited.  The Cadastral subcommittee met with the Board in November 2010 to ask for a change in this ruling but the Board was unmoved.  The Board did say, however, that they are reviewing the option of allowing surveyors and engineers to include a digital signature on electronic drawings.

The Cadastral Subcommittee also has a number of parcel production standards available for developing a parcel dataset.  These draft documents "can be reviewed here"
