Entry for Land Ownership / Taiwan


This is a discussion about the submission for Land Ownership / Taiwan.

The dataset provided only lists public-owned lands under ministry of interior.


Privacy protection is commonly required among any country and opens land information in line with the law is the way to balance privacy and transparency. Ministry of the interior of Taiwan is responsible for land administration and open the public land information it holds can enhance tenure security and advocate for opening datasets.


The requirement for the cadastral and registry information is:

  • Parcel Boundaries
  • Parcel ID
  • Property Value
  • Tenure Type

While it does not require “Owner name” and “Parcel address” to be provided, the coverage should be all land data as opposed to just public-owned lands.


Thank you for your question. In order to promote the open data in term of land information, ministry of the interior of Taiwan has been release public land, plot numbers, area of land, etc. Everyone can download these data throuth open data platform ( data.gov.tw ). In addition to that landowner could download their own land information according to the Personal Information Protection Act.
