Cadastral Map

Cadastral Map URL
Cadastral maps were first used by the Egyptians when first dealing with their annual flooding.  They had to survey the lands before the floods came because they could not reconstruct the boundaries after the flood.  Cadastral maps show the land boundaries and ownership among a certain area.  Each cadastral map can show something different, including street names and lot numbers.  These make it easier for outsiders to be able to locate places faster because it is easier to read.
