Abstract [en]

 The witness seminar ”Fastighetsdatasystemet” [the Land Data Bank System] was held at Tekniska museet [The National Museum of Science and Technology] in Stockholm on 30 September 2008 and led by Sture Hallström. The seminar dealt with the establishment of the Land Data Bank System and the rationalization in the handling of data on real properties and land. The main focus was directed towards the computerization of the real property register [fastighetsregistret] and the land register [inskrivningsregistret] and the different challenges this computerization of the manual registers faced. The organisation to carry this out was the Central Board for Real Estate Data, which started its work in 1968. A number of important inquiries supported the development of the Land Data Bank System, mainly two Governmental reports: the Real Estate Registration by the Swedish Register Committee in 1966 and EDP and Land Registration by the Land Register Committee in 1969. In finding the final design of the system, there were some political and emotional disagreements. The reformation of the property unit designations posed a particular concern. Another issue was the fact that the system came to be a personal register and questions of integrity arose. The technical matters caused some problems as new technologies like database management systems and the use of terminals and data communication were introduced. However, the core of the system has been stable and adaptable to changes over time. A legally binding start of the system could take place in Uppsala county in 1976, followed by Gävleborg and Stockholm county. The complete changeover took longer than anticipated, about 20 years, but was agreed to be well worth it. Suggestions to why the process could run so smoothly are that the Central Board for Real Estate data was a small, manageable and independent organisation, as well as having strong and open minded leaders. The coordinate system and its applications have expanded rapidly, for example in the use of the Global Positioning System, GPS. The Swedish Land Data Bank System has attracted great interest from all over the world and staff from the Central Board for Real Estate Data has assisted other countries in improving their systems for real property and land registration.
