Malaysia has practiced Cadastral Surveying since 1885 and it is more than 135 years in practice. Therefore, this practice should be updated in accordance with the capability and advent of technology of ICT, GIS and GNSS. eKadaster application was first introduced in 2010 as a move to improve the delivery system of title survey. All 13 JUPEM States, Licensed Land Surveyor (LLS) and Land Related Agencies (ABT) in Peninsular Malaysia as well as the Federal Territory of Labuan adopted it.
eKadaster system is a fully web-based application. The application is only compatible with Windows operating system. The application is best viewed using Internet Explorer 8 and above with a minimum resolution of 1280 x 1024. Users should also install Microsoft.Net Framework version 3.5 SP1 and above and Microsoft Silverlight version 5.0 and above. However, the application will automatically display message to install Microsoft Silverlight if not detected. For users involved in the digital signature module, the hardware/appliance needs to be installed with Leadtools software, which can be downloaded online via/at SPAK LS. In addition, users are encouraged to have a/install a PDF Reader.
Users can access the application modules through Local Area Network (LAN) or Internet, depending on the user category. In general, JUPEM users access the application modules via LAN and JUPEM Geoportal whereas users from outside JUPEM access via JUPEM Geoportal (JUPEM official web page). Accessed to the application modules in the eKadaster system can be done online via the following links:

User is advised to follow the following steps namely to ‘Clear Internet Temp file’, ‘run the Disk Clean-up’ and reinstall Microsoft Silverlight. If the problem still persist, user is recommended to reinstall Internet Explorer 8 and above or ‘Restore Window’ to an Earlier Restore Point.
Users must ensure that “Trusted Internet Options Site” has been set to http://ekadaster.[statecode].jupem.gov.my/ and uncheck the 'Turn on Pop-up Blocker' on the Privacy tab in Internet Explorer.
User should check and ensure that the folders structure, ASCII data structure and number of ASCII data that has been uploaded are in compliance with the structure as stated in the “Pekeliling KPUP Bil 6/2009 “. User also need to ensure that the numbers of fixed points in .tps file are adequate and assign the correct status code of the CRM Points. If the problem still persist, user is advisable to retry the upload process at different time, because the problem might occur due to connection interference (communication) to SUM Server database at that time.
Why was the result of SUM (chi square test) on different file is not consistent although the same fixed point was used?
It is possibly due to the changes in NDCDB data. Users can verify the NDCDB’s values from JUPEM2U. Should there be any discrepancies, download the new fix points from NDCDB and reprocess the data using the new value/NDCDB. However, if users have been using CRM as fix points, no need to reprocess the data.
Why do the fix points is within the permitted tolerance of NDCDB, but the results of chi square test show upper bound?
Users should refer to the ASCII.lst file and identify which traverse contain high standard deviation.
Usually, this happens when the fix points provided by the user do not follow the required procedures. The fixpoints must be established across the lot. Apart from that, additional fixed points are required especially if the survey area is big, where an area with no fixed point may result in unacceptable shifting.
Among the possible queries are due to the position of the lot is not within the correct boundaries. In addition, the information in the Pre-Computation Plan (three (3) American Standard Code for Information Interchange - ASCII) submitted by Licensed Land Surveyor (LLS) is not the same as the document uploaded into the system. At the same time, there is no confirmation from Land Related Agencies (ABT) in Peninsular Malaysia as well as the Federal Territory on the Pre-Computation Plan submitted. There is also a difference between area in Pre-Computation Plan and the Qualified Title (QT) Plan. Some other queries which are often occur in the state JUPEM that have a huge impact on the application are as follows:
i. Coordinate error in Survey Application (PU) ASCII.
ii. No Board of Land Surveyors (LJT)/PTG/PDT/PTJ reference number.
iii. PU number and Land Office (PT) number were not provided for reviewing purposes.
iv. The letter of appointment of LLS is not attached.
v. The approved area is not filled in.
vi. The surveyed lines in the submitted PU have not been tied to the nearest boundary.
vii. There is no endorsement on the plan uploaded.
Accordingly, all users must check and ensure the information is correct before uploading and submitting the information and attachments into the eKadaster system.
It is likely due to the expiry of digital signature license from Digicert Sdn Bhd. For your information, the system will provide advance notice before the license expired. So that, users can renew the digital signature license.
