Project description

POPP-KAD is a digital land register for the middle of the 19th century. It contains the names of all

owners and a detailed description of properties, both built-on and vacant, across large parts of Belgium. These data are based on the cadastral matrices of municipalities that were published by P.C. Popp (1840-1880).
