A Cadastre, in the sense to be used in this paper, is a methodically established record of immovable. (Land, buildings, rights that are put on a par with landed property) based on the survey of a complete district. The official record of a cadastral survey generally consists of a drawing or map and a written description of the field work. Cadastres as a rule consist of a map of the survey, a register arranged according to parcels, a register arranged according to proprietors and some auxiliary registers for easier handling. The single parcels are systematically numbered, on the map. The connection between map and registers is established by indicating the parcels in the registers by their map numbers.
