Most land information systems rely on systematic records of property rights that are associated with parcels and parcel boundaries (Tuladhar et al. 2004). Parcels may however not always be the most appropriate spatial basis for maintaining land records. Not only does surveying parcels and parcel boundaries tend to be too expensive in low-income countries (de Vries et al. 2003), but it also tends to be bureaucratic in countries with weak governance systems (Hanstad 1997) and deferred when limited technical surveying resources are available (Enemark and Williamson 2004). In such cases, alternative organizational processes are required as a basis for developing and maintaining the land records. One such alternative is the point cadastre.
