Geodesy and Land Management

Geodesy and Land Management

The Geodesy and Land Management Unit of the Tallinn Urban Planning Department names places, changes and assigns addresses, organises activities related to land, manages and supervises geodetic works and shares information on performed land surveying works.

Establishment of place names and addresses

The owner of a building or a property can apply for the establishment or amendment of their object’s address. In the case of justified interest, the owner can apply for the establishment or amendment of their object’s name.
