Cadastral

By on July 28, 2018

A cadastral is a legal map, or survey, that records ownership of parcels of land showing value and boundaries within a certain jurisdiction.

The use of it is often (but not exclusive) for the purpose of taxation.

The Cadastral Survey within the U.S. Department of the Interior Bureau of Land Management is the agency responsible for maintaining these records of public land.

The job of a cadastral surveyor is to analyze and determine the boundaries of property for official government record.

During the process, there can be establishment and re-establishment of land parcel boundaries.

This is with the use of unambiguous language to describe land parcels in legal documentation.

The cadastre is an authoritative source of data used to resolve lawsuits and disputes arising between owners of land.
