REWIERS NOTE: The terms of use state that usage of the data follows Cadastral Law, which lists several possible purposes data can be used for. I don't consider this an open license. When I discussed this with the community which uses the data, I've been told that in fact, this whole register works as public domain. The official terms of use statement:
