Cadastral and Titling Surveying

Cadastral survey at Vision Surveys (QLD)

Cadastral surveying, also referred to as a boundary survey or identification survey, involves accurately defining legal boundaries and land ownership rights. It plays a pivotal role in land management, property ownership, and urban planning and is crucial for maintaining accurate land records, resolving property disputes, and ensuring the proper utilisation of land resources. 

Our cadastral surveying technology

At Vision, our extensive cadastral experience ranges from urban and rural boundary identification surveys, simple boundary realignments, and secondary interest creation (easements, covenants, leases etc), to complete titling for high-rise unit developments and large estate subdivisions.

Building land ownership confidence  

Through cadastral surveys, Vision Surveys (QLD) assists governments, land agencies, and property owners in establishing a robust foundation for land ownership. This framework is vital for property taxation, land development strategies, and urban planning initiatives. The cadastral map and records generated serve as official documentation of property boundaries and ownership, offering definitive legal assurance to landowners while minimising the potential for conflicts. Our surveys are registered with the Surveyors Board of Queensland, meaning they have been assessed as competent to lawfully perform cadastral surveys.

Cadastral surveying FAQs

What is a cadastral survey? 

A cadastral survey is the precise measurement, mapping and demarcation of land parcels, often used for legal and administrative purposes. 

How to read a cadastral survey? 

Understanding how to read a cadastral survey involves interpreting boundary lines, markers, measurements, and annotations on the survey map. 

What’s the difference between cadastral surveying and boundary surveying? 

The key distinction between cadastral surveying and boundary surveying lies in their scope: cadastral surveying focuses on legal land parcel mapping and ownership, while boundary surveying involves determining property lines and markers. 

What is boundary marking? 

In Queensland, property boundaries are defined by the survey marks placed at the corners. These marks are usually white timber pegs. Corners are not defined by GPS points or coordinates. Under section 42 of the Survey and Mapping Infrastructure Act 2003, it is an offence to interfere with a survey mark without approval.

What is a boundary survey? 

Boundary surveys or Identification Surveys are performed to identify existing boundaries. Boundary Surveys are often carried out to facilitate fencing and building works, resolve ownership disputes, and confirm land boundaries prior to purchase. Re-determining an existing boundary can be complex and our surveyors must consider all legal and physical boundary evidence. By law, an Identification Survey Plan must be prepared and submitted it to the Queensland Government as an official record of the survey.

What is a GIS? 

A GIS (Geographic Information System) is a digital platform that integrates geographic data from diverse sources, enabling surveyors to store, manage, and analyse spatial information for informed decision-making and comprehensive mapping in various surveying applications.
