The objective of this contract is the establishment of the Turkish Land Parcel Identification System (LPIS, the main component of the Turkish IACS), through the creation of a seamless geo-database of reference parcels (physical blocks) covering the whole national territory under LOT 2 (about 390.000 km2), in favour of the Ministry of Food, Agriculture and Livestock (MoFAL). The geo-database is composed of digitization of initial LPIS including agricultural surfaces (arable, grass lands and pastures, vineyards, olive groves and other permanent crops) in addition to digitization of non-agricultural areas outside/inside the physical blocks. The physical blocks contain selected landscape features for GAEC’s (Good Agricultural and Environmental Condition) purposes and selected area-based measures of the Rural Development Plan (RDP) and Digitization remaining gaps (i.e. forests, water bodies, rocks, etc.) to avoid the identification and declaration of agricultural parcels by farmers in non-eligible areas.
- Production of geographic database according to the technical specification in specific format;
- Provision of timely feedbacks from the performance of work requested by the Beneficiary and External Quality Control (EQC) contractor, contributing to final photo interpretation guideline;
- Efficient usage and timely data ingestion to the WEB/GIS application developed by EQC contractor, in order to exchange information regularly and in real time between MoFAL, orthophoto and LPIS digitization contractors;
- Execution and documentation of all internal quality control records to be submitted simultaneously with each data delivery to EQC contractor and Beneficiary;
- Timely data delivery to EQC contractor and Beneficiary for the execution of independent control before data acceptance;
- Redelivery of the full geographical database along with the revised internal QC reports to the Beneficiary following the EQC performed by the independent contractor;
- Support to MoFAL on initiation/execution of consultations with farmer in pilot regions to link physical block to agricultural parcels
