The vision of the Authentic Data Sources program is: “Working to maximize authentic, reusable, quality and integrated data for society.”
The central goal of the Program is to be a catalyst in the transformation of the Flemish government into a digital and information driven government. The program focuses on making information sources available in a reusable way, both for internal (Information Flanders) and external (other entities within and outside the Flemish government, citizens, companies, associations …) use.
One of the product groups within the program is that of the Flemish Basic Registers.
The product group invests in an integrated system of qualitative basic registers that stimulate the reuse of data and avoid double registration. These registers form a system of interconnected authentic data sources. They form the basis for smooth data exchange and integration within and outside the government.
The system of Basic Registries includes the Buildings, Addresses and Roads Register. The Buildings and Addresses Register gathers all basic information about buildings and addresses on Flemish territory in a single register. This register will be the basic register for building and address information in Flanders and will be the central linking standard in the network of building and address-related data sources. The Roads Register is the medium-scale reference file of the roads in Flanders. It should contain all (publicly accessible) roads of Flanders, with associated attribute data.
These basic registers are currently being developed incrementally in a phased approach. One of the challenges we face is the migration of the original buildings, addresses and roads data source (CRAB) to this new system of basic registers.
