Cadastral web viewer

More information



The Tax Administration of Province of Barcelona (ORGT) is in charge of managing, inspecting and collecting income and taxes delegated to the Barcelona City Council. In order to carry out its function, they need to have updated geographical information, especially related to real estate and economic activities. Nexus Geographics collaborated in the design, construction and implementation of their new cadastral map server.

The web viewer uses open source computing functions and implementations (industry-standard Open Source libraries such as OpenLayers and JQuery) and is independent from the map server.

It provides direct access to the online cartography of the General Cadastre Management (Direcció General del Cadastre, DGC) and the Cartographic Institute of Catalonia (Institut Cartogràfic de Catalunya, ICC), always having the most up-to-date version of cartography.

These are its main characteristics:

  • Online access to the updated cadastre and ICC cartography
  • Access to the new services of historical cadastral plans (since 2003)
  • Access to the new aerial orthophotograph 1:2.500 from the ICC (pixel 25 cm)
  • Access to urban planning in Catalonia
  • Eliminate the need to upload your own cartography
  • Specific controls to obtain the street view of the current map
  • Provides a configured application for linking and relating the viewer to other ORGT systems
  • It allows to print in a layout with simple and attractive templates, enabling the realization of map compositions and export to PDF
