/// Managing the Privatization of East Germany’s State-Owned Lands with ArcGIS Enterprise and High-Accuracy Mobile GIS
When Germany reunited in 1990 after the Cold War, the country established a Trustee Agency dedicated to privatizing nationally owned lands in the German Democratic Republic (East Germany).
The privatization — which began in the 1990s using the best mapping technologies available at the time — continues to this day (expected completion is the 2030s). Bodenverwertungs-und-verwaltungs GmbH (BVVG) was an organization created in 1992 to help manage the privatization of 1.8 million land parcels. Over the decades, BVVG has regularly re-evaluated, tested, and deployed the most cutting-edge mobile mapping technologies to help manage this incredibly complex and large-scale project. In this case study, learn how BVVG has proactively modernized its mobile mapping technology — from the early days of ArcView and military-grade notebooks to today’s use of Arrow Gold GNSS and Esri ArcGIS mobile apps — to better serve their stakeholders.
