Cadastre Introduction
In order to certain about the land demarcation and provide assistance for arranging and regulating the non-movable properties in Macao SAR, since 1983, Cartography and Cadastre Bureau started the on-site survey on all the lands in Macao SAR. High precision land boundary and area are collected by using the most recent surveying equipments and advanced calculation methods. Meanwhile, the relevant cadastre data was also collected, such as the land description of Property Registration Department, the property records of Finance Department, the house number and the name of the buildings. After the 10 years work, the cadastre database of the entire Macao SAR was built.

In order to allow the land owner or the relevant people to know the land demarcation, review the Cadastral Plan, claim objections or modify the relevant Cadastral Plan, according to the Government Decree-Law No.3/94/M in January 17th 1994 - "Cadastre Law", Cartography and Cadastre Bureau requires to expose all the Cadastral Plan to the public in different parishes and in several phases within the period from September of 1994 to February of 1998. This campaign called "Cadastre Publication". During the cadastre publication, if the land owner or the relevant people have no objection, the provisory Cadastral Plan would become to definite Cadastral Plan after the legal process (please see the Executive Order in the below board). After this cadastre publication campaign, 75% of the land demarcations in Macao SAR have been confirmed and become definite Cadastral Plan.
