Document Type: Journal Paper


A review of past efforts and opinions related to the improvement of an outdated land record system is given. Conflicts between legal and engineering profession in the approach to the problem are highlighted. A new uniform and comprehensive land record system — a Cadastre — administered on the county level, is recommended. Because the land parcel is the base unit of such system, precise and permanent determination of location and boundaries is urged. Also, it is suggested that the system will function best under the leadership and direction of well educated survey engineers.
