Land and land related activities form part of the basis of all economies and therefore the societies they support. Land is managed through land administration, with successful economies relying on effective land administration systems. At the core of land administration is the cadastre. Cadastre 2014 is a strategic document published in 1998 by FIG that contains six core statements and a vision for future cadastral systems. However, many developments, issues and challenges have emerged since 1998, requiring that Cadastre 2014 be re-assessed in light of these, to ensure that its statements and vision align with current and future needs of society. This paper provides an analysis of the cadastral strategic statements against the current context, offering recommendations for each statement. The aim is to contribute to Cadastre 2014 to ensure it most effectively supports cadastral systems of today and in the future.
