It is a list of land-property, in 1785 ordered by the emperor Josef II. for tax purposes. The difference to the previous registry (the land-registry of Maria Theresia) was almost exact admeasurement of all land-property. Even fields possessed by nobilities were to be taxed. Basic unit of tax was so called "katastralni obec" (= cadastral locality). Tax was to be levied by state clerks (not by lordīs clerks as in the past). The emperor died in 1790. After his death the land-registry of Maria Theresia again came into force (with some additional changes).
Land-property was devided according to a kind of culture (field, meadow, grassland, vineyard, forest) and yield. Every piece of land was registred under a topographical number, with a name of possessor, location (nearby possessors), width, length and surface of a site, yield, contribution.
In this land-registry houses were already recorded with house-numbers.
