  • What is the numeric cadastral survey?

    In narrow sense: Surveying the coordinates of the border points of each lot with surveying instruments and methods so as to calculate the acreages and plot the cadastral maps.

  • What’s the reason to carry out the numeric cadastral survey?

    1.People’s requirements for the precision of surveying increases day by day, the precision of analogue mapping can hardly meet the demand of high land price. 2.The development and popularization of computer allows numeric cadastral files to be combined with documents and processed together, which not only improves the efficiency of administration, but also strengthens the function of services for the people. 3.In order to promote reasonable and efficient management and utilization of land, we must improve the precision of cadastral surveying and completing land administration files so as to establish the multi-objective land information system, and numeric cadastral data can be the basis.

  • How is the situation of implementing and promoting cadastral resurvey in numeric method?

    The government has, in order to strengthen services for the people, improve the precision of surveying and establish the multi-objective land information system, specially adopted GPS instruments and total stations and other hi-tech precise measurement instruments and computers etc. For the pilot cadastral resurvey in the numeric method in Yuanlin Township of Changhua County since 1980s, the results of the pilot have show that the surveying was correct as the boundary points were easily restored and the distance measurement was correct as the cadastral maps can be drawn in any scale according to the actual requirements, the resurvey has got fine effect and gained recognition from the people, therefore, it is promoted year after year and since 1989, numeric method is adopted for all cadastral resurvey tasks.
