05 November 2019
Author / Speaker: 

Many developing countries have to improve methods of land valuation and related property taxation. This webinar gives insights into methods for using actual land transaction data from the country with the land cadastral maps and basic building height data (from EO data) to simulate different property values and related tax rates, which are currently being examined by the World Bank. Such methodologies can support countries to move towards an electronic land transaction billing system, a relevant land taxation system and will also assist the country with improving the total revenues captured.
