Cadastral surveying is the field of surveying that specializes in the establishment and re-establishment of property boundaries. Cadastral surveys create, mark and re-establish the boundaries of land parcels. A cadastre is a comprehensive recording of the property boundaries of all land parcels with real property rights in a country. In Namibia all real property rights get registered in the Deeds Office, Ministry of Agriculture, Water and Land Reform. Land parcels can be residential, commercial or industrial erven in towns and farms in rural areas.
