Fast approach cadastral documentation
Alexander Kohli
The logical consequence of economic development-land consumption- substantiates the need for sustainable land management and cadastre. Successful attempts to direct or manage land consumption or land use can only run on a solid base of a well-maintained digital cadastre which represents the actual situation of property and tenure holdings as well as the Public- Law restrictions on land...
