Welcome to the Hong Kong Cadastral System

Land is the source of all material wealth. From it we get everything that we use of value, whether it be food, clothing, fuel, shelter, metal, or precious stones. We live on the land and from the land, and to the land our bodies or our ashes are committed when we die. The availability of land is the key to human existence, and its distribution and use are of vital importance. (Simpson S.R. 1976)
