In 1806 advance workings began on the new cadaster. In virtue of the order, declared by the emperor Frantisek II. in 1817, in the cadaster had to be registered all land property. For that purpose it was to be known:

a) geometric size with a detailed description
b) a purpose of use
c) classification of cultivated fields (based on a soil quality)

For all localities were also done maps (using the trigonometrical method), providing detailed information on buildings and land property. Plots were marked by numbers. Borders of localities stayed as in Josef´s cadaster. Maps were drawn in the ratio scale 1:2880.

For tax purpose, final yields on land property were recorded. Workings on the cadaster finished in 1843.

Besides those maps so called "imperial reprints" were made later (coloured maps). In addition, other coloured prints were prepared, adapted for the purpose of using during the revision of the previous admeasurement. Those maps we call "Indikacni skicy".

In the cadaster land property was recorded in jitro and sah (see the list of measures), a yield in zlaty and krejcar (see the lists of currency).

The cadaster became valid in 1860.

Colours used on the "Indikacni skicy" (these maps are often used by researchers in the Czech Republic):

red = stone and brick houses
yellow = wooden houses
umbre = cultivated fields
dark green = gardens and meadows of good quality
light green = grasslands and barrens
grey = forests
blue = ponds and watercourses
brown = roads
pink = railroad
