Transitioning to a Domesday Cadastre for the Colonial States
Edward J. OBrien, PLS
The time has come to modernize our land system to create an accurate accounting of the spatial limits of our most valuable asset: Land.
The Colonial States are resplendent with examples of colorful but inadequate land descriptions that are recorded in a system of Grantee / Grantor indexing that leads to many dead end title searches. Monuments defining boundaries and lines acquiesced to need to be inventoried by a present day Domesday accounting. This presentation will explore for the Colonial States the pathway to reformation of Title by rectifying Legal Descriptions, the need to register the results in an Authoritative Cadastral Geodatabase and the Legislative changes and Geospatial infrastructure that would be required to enact the changes needed.
