Cadastral Survey and Land Records

Nature volume 130, page 362 (03 September 1932) | Download Citation



DURING the Conference of Empire Surveyors held in London last year, there was exhibited at the Science Museum a number of cadastral survey, land registry, and land revenue records. The Royal Geographical Society, at the instance of the Secretary of State for the Colonies, has arranged to house these exhibits, and hopes to make them the nucleus of a permanent reference collection in London. It is expected that the collection will include land laws, regulations, and technical instructions from all parts of the world, and will be representative of progressive advances in cadastral survey and land records in each country. Sir Ernest Dowson and Mr. V. L. O. Sheppard have jointly undertaken the collection, study, and maintenance of the documents.
