"Cadastre 2014" is the result of a working group of FIG-Commission 7 looking at trends and developments in the field of cadastre. The working group was active from 1994-1998 and presented the results at the FIG-Congress in Brighton in July, 1998. It projected the trends and developed visions of what cadastral systems might be in 20 years' time.

Cadastre 2014 has received worldwide attention and has been translated into 28 languages.
