Description
A Cadastral resurvey to be undertaken once again after it was conducted one century ago.

Cadastre, the record of information on land ownership, location, shape, lot number and boundaries, also known as "the resident registration of land," is used as the basic data for the efficient development and utilization of the nation's territory. The cadastral map currently being used in Korea was made of paper during the Japanese colonial period using outdated technology such as bamboo scale. It was transformed and later damaged over time, thus leaving about 15% of the national land unmatched with the map. This has in turn led to many social problems such as land disputes along with delayed development projects.

The Cadastral Resurvey Project was launched in an effort to establish land’s actual location and precise information. The project will carry out a rigorous investigation and measurement of the nation's entire land, and set the ground work for a future-oriented "digital cadastre" that can meet with international standards. The cadastral Resurvey Project, which will be carried out over 19 years from 2012 to 2030 is expected to bring about both a more efficient use of the national land, as well as protection of people's property rights, by providing dependable land information.

In order to promote this project, two commemorative stamps are issued, featuring "Cadastral resurvey" and "the new cadastral map."
