E-007456/2017(ASW)
Answer given by Mr Hogan on behalf of the Commission
Question reference: E-007456/2017

Article 70 of Regulation (EU) No 1306/2013(1) requires the Land Parcel Identification System (LPIS), a key tool used by administrations for determining the maximum eligible areas for area-based schemes/measures, to be established on the basis of maps, land registry documents or other cartographic references by making use of geographical information system (GIS) techniques, including aerial or spatial ortho-imagery. Ortho-images are geometrically corrected images allowing the projection of three-dimensional features (variation of the land relief) into two-dimensional maps.

Article 5 of Regulation (EU) No 640/2014(2) gives additional requirements for the LPIS and requires the GIS to operate on the basis of a national coordinate reference system as defined in Directive 2007/2/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council(3) which permits standardised measurement and unique identification of agricultural parcels throughout the Member State concerned. The national coordinate reference system is also used for cadastral, real estate and other registers which require standardised area measurements.
