Abstract

This paper provides an understanding of the cadastral evolution in Denmark with a focus on establishing the cadastre as an outcome of the enclosure movement in the late 1700s. The purpose of the cadastre was collection of tax based on the yielding capacity of the soil. The Danish cadastre, this way, was a result of transforming society from a feudal system to a capitalistic and market based economy.
This story is interesting in itself - but it also provides a key to understanding the cadastral system of today. The system has evolved over time and now serves a whole range of functions in society. The paper ends up describing the recent process of developing a fully digitised cadastre serving as basic infrastructure underpinning an efficient land market and effective land-use management.
