Brazil has, on the one hand, strong institutions in various areas, improved social situation and, on the other, the rural land situation is still very precarious, with basic unresolved questions, such as for example, knowledge of what is public and private land, due to the absence of cadaster. The legislation moved forward in an attempt to link the cadasters of INCRA, the Internal Revenue Service, with information from the Registry of Real Estate with the enactment of Law No. 10,267 / 2001, creating the National Register of Rural Properties – CNIR. Besides that, the land Management System – SIGEF, created in 2013, is contributing to the formation of a cadaster of rural land, comprising public and private areas, showing significant quantitative results of rural, public and private property, already georeferenced. However, the main step is the integration of all cadasters and the proposition of a way forward.
