Over centuries a cadastral system, based on the graphic representation of each piece of land and the title deed describing the rights in this piece of land, has been developed and maintained in the Republic of South Africa. The documentation of all these surveys, based on a common geodetic reference system, is maintained in the offices of the Surveyors-General. The ultimate goal of the Cadastral Information System, presently introduced at the offices, is to make these vast amounts of information available to the user at the push of a button on a computer screen.
