The Graphic Parcel Register is a geographic information system for identifying agricultural parcels. An anonymous version of the Graphic Parcel Register graphic data associated with some of the data declared by the farmers is disseminated. These data provide detailed information on land use and land structures. The Graphic Parcel Register provides information on the location and certain characteristics of the parcels and groups of farmers having filed a declaration for CAP (Common Agricultural Policy) aid. It must be used with caution for analyses of agricultural land (evolution, fragmentation, accessibility, etc.) because the image given by the Graphic Parcel Register is not always accurate: some agricultural areas are missing (areas of farms that do not receive aid, for example); these gaps are not the same from one year to the next (changes in aid, areas not declared for reasons relating to the life of a farm, a development project that was started and then postponed, etc.); the image of a given group may be modified by the farmer even though there is no actual change on the ground. The Graphic Parcel Register covers all French departments as well as the overseas territories of Saint-Barthélemy and Saint-Martin and is updated every year.
