||The cadastral map is the graphical data set contained in the cadastre in the coordinate system of the Austrian national topographic survey. The cadastral map is maintained by the responsible Cadastral Office. The map makes visible the location of parcels and includes:|
- Parcel boundaries
- Parcel identifiers
- Land cover information and symbols
- Control points, boundary points and state boundaries points with their identifiers
- Other attributes
The parcel register contains the cadastre`s factual data and is maintained for each cadastral unit. It includes the following information for every parcel:
- Cadastral unit identifier
- Parcel identifier
- Type and sections of land cover information
- Additional legal information (if available)
- Area of each section of land cover information
- Yield figure
- Case identifier
- Register unit identifier
- Other information for ease of identification
Parcel register with owner
In addition to the parcel register described above, the parcel register with owner is provided. The register records the name, date of birth and address of the owners, as well as information concerning co-ownership shares for the relevant unit of the land register.
Parcel register by (land) register units
This parcel register includes, according to the defined area of interest, all parcels belonging to a specific (land) register unit. Correspondingly, the register with owner lists all data concerning owners.
Historical parcel register
This register reflects the cadastre status of a parcel as of a defined date.
Business case register
This register contains all cases related to a parcel. These are identified by case identifiers ('Geschäftsfallnummer ', GFN) and refer to files in the competent Cadastral Office, which resulted in changes being made to the cadastre. With its comprehensive listing of cases the business case register thus documents all changes affecting an individual parcel.
Boundary and state boundary points
This register includes all existing boundary and state boundary points of the defined area of interest.
Protocol of negotiations
This extract, which takes the form of a chronological listing of individual cadastre status, records all changes made to a parcel documented by a case identifier.
The preview layer provides a graphic representation of parcels based on a surveying document (plan) produced by a licensed surveyor, which are subject to possible future changes in the cadastre, prior to a ruling by the land registry and implementation in the cadastre.
Reference date dataAt the beginning of every second and fourth calendar quarter current data from the parcel register, the cadastral map and ownership information are generated as key date data; this data is available for purchase three months thereafter. This graphic data (vector data) and attribute data (text) represent the legal status at the time they are generated. This data is adequate for a variety of uses, for example, overviews and large-scale planning. For uses pertaining to ownership, however, the latest data should be used.
Excerpt from the cadastral archives
Each change in the cadastre has been documented by means of a separate business case at the respective cadastral office since 1880. Basically the business case consists of a plan (public document) by a licensed surveyor. Before the plan (technical part) can be registered at the land register office and implemented in the cadastral map, it has to be certified by the respective cadastral office (exceptions for plans by the cadastral offices).
In the course of this registration process it is possible to add additional documents, which are not an integral part of the plan, to the business case. These than will be archived in the written part respectively in the papers about the boundary negotiation.
Until the 7th of May 2012 the business cases were stored in analog form at the archives of the cadastral offices as well as at the land register offices. Afterwards with the introduction of the Electronic Application the archives were digitized. All applications after this reference date can already be queried via the web. In 2013 we started to digitize, archive and provide in digital form all analogous documents of the cadastral offices. You find a status report on the homepage of the BEV under the top link "Digitalisierung Katasterarchive".
Historical cadastre – original map
The original map of the "Franziszeischer Kataster" (Urmappe 1817 - 1861) was the first area wide capture of all parcels of the monarchy as it was then. The original plane table sheets on handmade paper with the format 53 cm x 66 cm are hand colored and mostly in the scale 1:2 880. The coloring was based on a uniform legend that defined the different types of land use and the fonts for the map sheets. For each cadastral community (fiscal community) there was a separate numbering of the parcels with or without buildings. Additionally there are sketches of the separate overviews which state the province (crown land), regional and fiscal district as well as the name of the community, in most cases also the neighboring communities. The original map is considered cultural heritage as stated by the Hague Convention.
Administrative boundaries contain the boundaries of Austria`s administrative units in vector form. The accuracy of administrative boundaries that are coterminous with parcel boundaries corresponds to that of cadastral unit boundaries in the cadastral map. Generalized administrative boundaries are also available in 1:50 000 and 1:250 000 scale.
Information about regional units
||Regional information is provided in the form of attribute data and offers comprehensive information about any specific administrative unit as of the 31st of December of every year. It contains legally relevant data as well as technical and statistical information.|
Register of cadastral municipalities
This register is a list of all cadastral communities of Austria with the respective allocation to other administrative units.
Documentation of the state boundary
The Austrian state boundary (without Lake Constance) is 2 706 km long and it is defined by about 27 000 boundary marks and about 40 000 unmarked break points. The course of the boundary was laid down in the respective state boundary treaties and partly runs straight from mark to mark and at other times along a broken line, defined by the above mentioned unmarked break points. Partly it also runs along natural (topographic) realities such as mountain ridges (watersheds) or along the middle of water bodies and there it mostly follows their natural changes and thus is flexible.
There are bilateral boundary treaties with all 8 neighboring states. These treaties comprise the course of the common boundary, its documentation and maintenance, as well as the tasks of the bilateral boundary commissions.
The boundary documentation consists of the following parts:
- Boundary map
- Boundary description
- Coordinate register (in the respective coordinate system)
- Other technical documents
