This eminent cadastral survey under Franz I covered not only the territory of the present Republic of Austria, but also of all other countries of the former Austro-Hungarian Monarchy - that is to say Poland, Ukraine, Romania, the Czech Republic, Slovakia, Slovenia, Croatia, and Italy.

The Federal Office of Metrology and Surveying (BEV) wants to increase publicity, information and easier access to all the cadastral maps and parcel protocols, in order to create an easy and effective usability for numerous applications. BEV as the supreme cadastral authority in Austria has stored all original cadastral map sheets for the territory of Austria from the cadastral survey under Emperor Franz I, 1817-1861 in its cadastral maps archives in Vienna.

In order to inform you about all present depositories, addresses and summaries of the specification of the different archives in all the different countries are listed below.

The cadastral maps and the corresponding parcel protocols are of great importance and interest to the owners, surveyors, historians, and geographers. These data describe the history of the ownership, the course of the boundaries and the land use of all parcels in the scales 1: 2880, 1: 1440 or 1: 5760. The maps are available to the public for free for consultation and viewing. Reproductions can be bought and are produced as ordered. The interest of the public and science is increasing constantly.
