Land is important to all aspects of human life and has a key role in the economic well-being of society therefore, land tenure, land ownership, and real property law is a critical part of any developed nation. Together, the processes of how land parcels are held; how they are defined, measured, and described to allow economic transactions; how they are marked to allow their use and defense; and how they are legally protected have allowed for the orderly possession and use of land. In doing so, these processes have also provided the basis for the advanced economy of most developed nations. Very often, these processes—land tenure, boundary surveying, and cadastral systems—are considered separately. They are very much interrelated, and none of these processes may be completely understood without an understanding of the others. Land Tenure, Boundary Surveys, and Cadastral Systems provides an introduction to land tenure, cadastral systems, and boundary surveying, including an understanding of the interrelationship of these areas and their role in land tenure and real property law. This is especially true considering the advent of georeferenced cadastral maps reflecting the location of land parcels relative to many other components of the physical and legal infrastructure. Although intended as a basic text for college-level surveying courses, this book should also be of significant value to cadastral mappers, real property attorneys, land title professionals, and others involved with land transactions.

Where is the property line? The location of property boundaries is an essential but often overlooked element of real estate. Assumed by most to be a mechanical process requiring no special expertise, real estate professionals give little thought to the doctrines governing the procedure. But it is the surveyor's most complex and error-prone task. In this volume Leininger dissects the "black box" of boundary retracement and explains the rationale behind the competent surveyor's approach. It will be useful to surveyors, attorneys, title professionals and other allied professionals who retain surveyors or otherwise rely on their work.
