The conducting of cadastral surveys under private law (boundary surveys and documentary activities) in Austria is reserved to the profession of civilian technicans. Only people with a competence as a civil engineer for surveying and mapping or companies whom civil engineers have as a companion are entitled to produce the called archievements.
The cadastral surveying is made up of two areas, the boundary survey and the documentary activities.
In the case of boundary surveys, works are effected to define new property lines or to determine or restore existing borders. Land acquisitions are also discussed in tis connection. Boundary surveys generally include border negotations. Thereby the affected property owners and neighbours are invited to the inspection on site and to a statement to the determined borderline.
In the progress of documentary activities, property partitions are carried out by means of a partition plan. Properties can be converted from the land tax cadastre, wich is still based on franciscan cadstral sureying (1817-1861), into the border cadastre. This serves as a binding, coordinative proof for the borders of the properties.
Servitudes can be put down and. After the completion of building projects (e.g., in street-, railway-, power station or pipe construction) final documentation are generally carried out for the production of the land register order. Divisions according to §13 and §15 Liegenschaftsteilungsgesetz (law on parcel subdivision) as well as the representation of parties are further activities of the civil engineer.
KOPA disposes in the area of cadastral surveying of a know-how, built up for decades.
With its highly qulaified employees, KOPA covers the entire performance spectrum of cadastral surveying. This mostly starts with a consulting conversation and then continues with appropriate service (boundary surveying, documentary activities etc.).
The evaluation of surveying works is carried out with the programme rmGEO®. The plan production happeens according to the legal default in CAD under use of the module rmMAP®.
Evaluations and queries from the property data bank and the land register are carried out via program module rmGDB® and/or via web portal of the federal office for metrology and surveying (BEV).
All documents are stored according to the E-Government law (E-GovG) and the occupational right amending law 2006 (BRÄG 2006) in the electronic document archive of the federal chamber for architects and engineers (bAIK).
