Turkey has produced cadastral data using different methods until today. Therefore, not all the data are the same standard in quality. Three different methods (correction, digitisation and updating) have been applying for update. Choosing the right method will save significant time and cost. Also, surveying the fixed boundaries will give the most accurate results. However, this is not always possible. The distribution of fixed boundaries is only 46.39% in the application area. So, fixed boundaries should be measured as far as possible. The places where the digitisation and updating methods will be applied should be determined very well.
