In the cadastre ( real estate cadastre ) all properties are recorded and displayed according to their location, type of use , size, etc. It (he) is kept by the responsible land registry or surveying office and is the basis of the land register .
For the public, the map series of the cadastral plans is actually more important than the main part of the cadastre, the cadastral books (description of the land according to location, address, type of use, m², building, owner), because the graphical representation, the plans (e.g. scale 1: 1000)
- technical and city maps are made,
- Citizens can find out more about their property or about someone else's property or their property number - even if they do so in the land register ,
- other offices get the first information for projects,
- Any planning conflicts are the first to come to light
- and many other things.
Only then is it necessary to take a look at the directories.
- Transfer (e.g. old plans) to the real estate cadastre
- Division of land to form building or new land
- Measurement of buildings
- Real Estate Association
- Certifications, border certificates, etc.
The term cadastral map or mapping comes from the early 19th century (southern German-Austrian area). The field cracks , which were valuable because of their uniqueness and the amount of work involved in creating them , were saved and archived in folders immediately after the measurement (boxes on the measuring table ) . The originals ("Urmappe") of the Franziszeischen cadastre of the Austro-Hungarian monarchy are in the Federal Office for Metrology and Surveying in Vienna and in the archives of the successor states of the monarchy.
