The Surveyed Land: 200 Years of the Cadastre in Slovenian Lands

Brdo pri Kranju, Slovenia (23-24 May, 2017)

The Association of Surveyors of Slovenia organized the two-days event entitled “The Surveyed Land: 200 Years of The Cadastre in Slovenian Lands” to celebrate the 200-anniversary of the land cadastre. Slovenia shared the land cadastre origins with the countries that used to be a part of the former Habsburg Monarchy in the beginning of the 19th century. Namely, in December 1817 the former monarchy issued the Land Tax Act that provided the basis for the systematic cadastral surveying.   

At the Tuesday’s ceremonial academy with a concert by the Big Band of the Slovenian Armed Forces Band, Gerda Schennach held the speech on behalf of the FIG. The president of the Council of European Geodetic Surveyors (CLGE), Maurice Barbieri, also participated in the event and congratulated for this great tradition. Beside representatives of the Slovenian academic, public and private institutions, many guests from Austria, Croatia, Serbia and Macedonia joined the event.
