Session Abstract

Use, analysis and application of various data sources is both a tool for valuation offices and also a benefit for government wide initiatives. This panel discussion examines how governments are using big data to support the valuation function, for example by increasing the accuracy of the valuation role, and also making valuation role data available for government-wide use to support strengthen land tenure security and general economic and social development. The use of big data, such as satellite imagery or census data, may improve the process and efficiency of valuing properties, land and resources. Also, by making valuation data widely available, tenure security is improved especially when linked with the courts or for example when establishing credit markets for real estate.
