Abstract: The Common Agricultural Policy (CAP) of the EU required a large amount of GI data in order to manage area-based subsidies for the European farmers. The Land Parcel Identification Systems (LPIS) are established in all MS as a state register and evidence a new kind of land management in the agricultural sector. The aim of this paper is twofold: (i) to study institutional requirements of the EU regulatory framework and (ii) to introduce the framework of conceptual modelling and methodological approaches for standardisation in this sector domain. This paper addresses the recent challenges for LPIS geographic data, such as operating within a Spatial Data Infrastructure (SDI) and its requirements for data harmonisation and interoperability. The core LPIS Conceptual Model (LCM) that represents conceptual compliance with the EU regulations is introduced. The first-cut LCM described in this paper is the initial step on the way to standardization in the IACS Spatial Data Interest Community (Devos et al, 2007). The LCM is generated by means of both (i) methodological approaches of International Standards of ISO 19100 series and the INSPIRE principles and (ii) reverse engineering of existing operational systems. The latter is based on results of a LPIS survey (Milenov and Kay, 2006) covering different national implementations.
