Digital Lodgement

Our Vision:
"To create an efficient cadastral environment, where information is lodged, processed and managed
digitally, for the benefit of the community, within the bounds of South African Law."

The survey profession has been making use of advanced technology (Total Stations, electronic fieldbooks, GPS, etc.) for many years. It is time that the processes taking place within the Surveyor-Generals' offices were brought in line with the technological progress being made in the commercial world.

The introduction of a Digital Lodgement System within the offices of the Surveyors-General will have far-reaching implications for all role-players in the cadastral environment. Digital lodgement will benefit the profession by ultimately providing, inter alia, a more efficient examination of lodged records and documents, a shorter examination period, and improved availability of survey and cadastral data. The SG offices themselves will gain improved service delivery, reduction in the required storage space, improved accuracy of the spatial database, and a more client-focussed service.
