A survey that creates, defines, retraces, or reestablishes the boundaries and subdivisions of public lands and private estates. The ownership, characteristics, and value of private lands are recorded for taxation purposes.
A record of interests in land, encompassing both the nature and extent of interests. Generally, this means maps and other descriptions of land parcels as well as the identification of who owns certain legal rights to the land (such as ownership, liens, easements, mortgages, and other legal interests). Cadastral information often includes other descriptive information about land parcels.
a parcel-based land information system that includes a geometric description of land parcels, usually represented on a cadastral map. In some jurisdictions it is considered separate from, but linked to, the register of land rights and holders of those rights (land register), while in other jurisdictions the cadastre and land register are fully integrated.
a register of land information or more specifically according to the FIG definition: a cadastre is normally a parcel-based, and up-to-date land information system containing a record of interests in land (e.g. rights, restrictions and responsibilities). It usually includes a geometric description of land parcels linked to other records describing the nature of the interests, the ownership or control of those interests, and often the value of the parcel and its improvements. It may be established for fiscal purposes (e.g. valuation and equitable taxation), legal purposes (conveyancing), to assist in the management of land and land use (e.g. for planning and other administrative purposes), and enables sustainable development and environmental protection.
a National Inventory or Knowledge Bank. The cadastre would provide a national picture of Australia's physical and human resources, both nationally and regionally and link the research bases of the Commonwealth and States, including the Census and the National Land and Water Resources Audit
A data set containing information related to land ownership and rights. This usually takes the form of maps and descriptions of uniquely identifiable land parcels. For each parcel, legal information such as ownership, easements and mortgages are recorded.
a land information system and, in the case of ancient landscapes, its physical remains. In Roman cadastres these are often seen as minor roads, ditches and other modern boundaries conforming to the limites. The establishment of a formal Roman cadastre was preceded by surveying ( limitatio) and the establishment of survey markers ( terminatio). Not all such surveys were centuriations. It is thus technically incorrect to use that word to signify all types of Roman land planning and allotment. For this reason, and because it embraces all aspects of the system, the term "cadastre" is to be preferred.
Official map records pertaining to location, quantity, value and ownership of land parcels within a government jurisdiction. A record of interest in land encompassing both the nature and extents of interests. Cadastral information often includes other descriptive information about land parcels.
