This capstone project addresses the issue of the acceleration of cadastre renovation in Kosovo. The cadastre of a country is its register of property titles and is usually managed by government agencies1. The Cadastre in Kosovo is managed by the Kosovo Cadastral Agency (KCA), which is the highest authority for cadastre in the Republic of Kosovo. Cadastre renovation in Kosovo has started since 2003, with the pilot project in cadastral zone (CZ) Dobrashec in Gllogovc municipality. In that time, this pilot project was declared successful. After this pilot there has been another pilot project in three CZ. These CZ are Brekoc in Gjakova, Livoq I poshtem in Gjilani and Sofalia in Prishtina. Since 2003 until now, renovation is finished in 42 CZ, and actually in 2012 there are 22 CZ in process. After completion of these 22 CZ at the end of 2012, renovation will be finished in 64 CZ. Considering that 1238 CZ have yet not been renovated, according to the current rate of this process, we can conclude that if we renovated 22 CZ every year, renovation process will take 56 years. This shows that the process of renovation is going very slowly. This project has considered three approaches for renovation of Kosovo’s cadastral database. The three scenarios cover different time periods. 1. Scenario 1, five year period 2. Scenario 2, ten year period and 3. Scenario 3, twenty year period The five year scenario would be the most
