The main task of the Department of Geodesy, cartography and cadaster - state control and professional supervision in relevant areas.
Legal and technical information is kept in the Cadaster. It is used for the purpose of protection of legitimate rights, for tax purposes, for the purpose of environmental protection, preservation of land resources etc.
The Cadaster, except for the central office, comprises 8 departments in regional centres and 72 administrations.
