This book is a historical study of the survey and mapping system of
Palestine under the British Mandate. It traces the background and
the reasoning behind the establishment of the survey programme,
examines the foundations upon which the system was based, and
strives to understand the motivation of those who implemented it.
This study shows that the roots of the modern survey system of
Palestine are to be sought in the Balfour Declaration and its
implications regarding land in Palestine. The land issue was at the
core of the mapping of Mandatory Palestine, and it remains as a
core issue at the heart of the Israeli-Palestinian dispute.
