The new user-friendly geographic information system contains up-to-date high-resolution orthophotos, digital elevation model, and elevation model above ground level. Properties can be searched in it by entering the parcel number, street, and house number. 

Mayor of Debrecen László Papp said at the press conference that the new geographic information system makes the regulatory plan available in a much more user-friendly, easy-to-use format for the citizens of the city and for all those who want to develop, invest, build or generally carry out any construction-related activity in Debrecen.

Real estate development, both residential and industrial,  in Debrecen will be very important In the coming years, he said. 

The mayor stressed that the city is undergoing an economic development process. It inevitably means that the development of residential and commercial real estate and real estate development, in general, will be a priority. It is of the utmost importance that the necessary rules are available easily and, easy to understand, and easy to use, he said.

He emphasized that their aim is to provide users with an easy-to-use, transparent geographic information system ready for the coming years’ very significant real estate development processes.

Zoltán Póser, Managing Director of EDC Debrecen, said that the 21st century is all about digitalization. On the one hand, the new system will help individuals, investors, and residents to know what they can do with their properties, and on the other hand, it will be the basis for a digital city system, on which other areas can be built, later on, he added. 

Tamás Tomor, commercial and business development director of Envirosense Hungary Kft. said that the system can be accessed by the public on the debrecen.hu website. In addition to the information contained in the zoning and regulatory plan,  it makes the editing functions available to the office staff. 

The new geographic information system contains building regulations for all the properties in Debrecen, including their parameters, and the user can zoom in and out on the map to any size. The system will be extended with street view in the future.

The new geographic information system was developed for HUF 12 million.
