Land administration ('the process of determining, recording, and disseminating information about ownership, value and use of land when implementing land management policies' according to UN Land Administration Guidelines 1996) facilitates -inter alia- land tenure security, the land market, land use planning and control, land taxation and management of natural resources. In textbooks usually two processes are determined for the initial establishment and maintenance of the system, namely the adjudication process and the cadastral boundary survey. This paper aims at identifying unconventional approaches from the point of view of land registrars and land surveyors, which might contribute to the development of appropriate land administration systems in countries that desire to use a land register and cadastre as a tool for the implementation of its land policy.
