An overview of the history of the evolution of cadastral arrangements is developed. The North American cadastral arrangements are examined with respect to their effectiveness in meeting the requirements of land transfer, real estate assessment, land management, environmental protection; and in understanding the land tenure institution. The design concepts of multipurpose cadastral systems for meeting these requirements are developed and case studies from the Maritime Provinces in Canada, and Massachusetts and Wisconsin in the United States are presented. /ASCE/
