CADASTRAL SURVEY (Land Ownership and Poll Tax Registration). From Wikipedia: Cadastre
A cadastre (also spelled cadaster), using a cadastral survey or cadastral map, is a comprehensive register of the real estate or real property's metes-and-bounds of a country.
The cadastre is a fundamental source of data in disputes and lawsuits between landowners
A cadastre commonly includes details of the ownership, the tenure, the precise location (therefore GNSS coordinates are not used due to errors such as multipath), the dimensions (and area), the cultivations if rural, and the value of individual parcels of land. Cadastres are used by many nations around the world, some in conjunction with other records, such as a title register.
The word cadastre came into English through French from Late Latin capitastrum, a register of the poll tax,
The word forms the adjective cadastral, used in public administration, primarily for ownership and taxation purposes.
