Geodetic Monuments - Coordinate System Origins of Cadastral Survey in Croatia

Miljenko Solarić


The paper describes how Emperor Francis I made a law about cadastral survey for the needs of land taxing and establishing the first stable cadastre in a graphic way. The territory of present Croatia was divided into four coordinate systems: the Krim, Vienna, Budapest and Kloštar Ivanić ones. Their origins have been preserved and geodesists in the whole Europe consider them as their monuments. Namely, cadastral surveys in Europe have played a significant part in those countries' economies.
