About this book


This book highlights the latest improvements in cadastre with examples and case studies from various parts of the world. Authors from different continents, in association with national and international organizations and societies, present the most comprehensive forum to date for cadastre, offering a broad overview of land administration and contemporary perspectives on current research and developments, including surveying, land management, remote sensing and geo-information sciences. 

Cadastre is a universal concept and is defined as “the work of officially mapping and systemically registering the areas, borders and values of all kinds of land and property”. It is normally a parcel-based and up-to-date land information system containing a record of interests in land with rights, restrictions and responsibilities. It may be established for fiscal and legal purposes, to assist in management for better planning and other administrative purposes, and to enable sustainable development and environmental protection. As such, “cadastre” is an important public inventory documenting the records of ownership, bordering and responsibility regarding the land with “title deeds” to parcels and answering the questions of “whose land, where and how much”.

The materials included in the book can support courses at universities and related training institutions worldwide, and will greatly improve readers’ understanding of the scholarly fields involved in cadastre: land registration and management, surveying and mapping, and geo-information management, land governance, land taxation and public administration etc.

About the editors

Professor Tahsin Yomralioglu obtained his Ph.D. in 1993 from the University of Newcastle upon Tyne, U.K. and was appointed as an Assistant Professor at the Department of Surveying Engineering at Karadeniz Technical University (KTU) in 1994. He became a full-time Professor in 2001, and in 2009, he was appointed as a professor at the Faculty of Civil Engineering Department of Geomatics Engineering at Istanbul Technical University (ITU). In 1994, he became the Deputy Chairman of the Department, and the Head of the both Cartography and the Land Management divisions at KTU. He was also appointed as the General Secretary of KTU, and an adviser to the Rector of KTU in Trabzon and the Rector of ITU in Istanbul. 
Professor Yomralioglu has served as member on various commissions at TUBITAK, Higher Education, and also worked as a project manager and consultant at several public and private institutions. He supervised about thirty research and development projects. He established the ITU-GeoIT graduate program and the first national GIS R&D innovation center in Turkey, and has published numerous international and national scientific research publications in the fields of Geographical Information Technology, Land Management, and Property Valuation. 
Dr. John McLaughlin is a Professor of Engineering and President Emeritus at the University of New Brunswick. He also studied for his doctorate at the Institute for Environmental Studies, University of Wisconsin. Professionally, Dr. McLaughlin has been a leader in building the North American geomatics industry and has worked extensively in more than 40 countries on the de
