Cadastral data composed of land boundary and ownership has a very dynamic nature while conventional GIS data model assumes the world is static. In order to fill the gap, authors clarified the dynamic nature of cadastral data and presented the analysis of functional requirements, and then developed a spatio-temporal model and relevant functionalities, which can deal with real world cadastral data. The proposed model and functions were implemented using prolog, XPCE, and C++. The value of this study is to uncover the need for the integration of all historical cadastral data and the feasibility of the system development for the future.
