Cadastral Template
A Worldwide Comparison of Cadastral Systems

Cadastral country reports based on a jointly developed PCGIAP/FIG template.
Established under UN mandate by Resolution 4 of the 16th UNRCC-AP in Okinawa, Japan in July 2003.
UN endorsement for cooperation with UN-ECE WPLA, UN-ECA CODI, and PCIDEA.


The cadastral template website is under reconstruction and will hopefully soon be replaced by a database driven solution. For the time being, we are only updating the PDF documents.

The "Cadastral Template" project will of course be continued. We are open and grateful for further updates and new country data. Please update either the word document of your country report as available here or for new country reports use one of the Templates for Download (English, Español, Portugues)
