The objective of the paper is summarizing the present state of the real estate cadastre in Poland, based on three examples of three voivodeships (provinces): Malopolska (Lesser Poland), Dolny Slask (Lower Silesia) and Podlasie. These voivodeships represent tiese areas of Poland, in which historic resource of surveying and cartography was made according to three different principles. These principles were connected with the state of the partition of Poland between three neighbouring countries, because of that, in Poland we can talk about the former partition of Austria, Prussia and Russia. This way the Malopolska voivodeship is the former areas of Austria, Dolny Slask – Prussia, while the Podlasie voivodeship represents the former Russian partition.
In recent years one of the most important tasks carried out by surveying and cartography services is complex modernization of the inventory of land and buildings (Polish abbreviation: EGiB), carried out in a digital. In the article the selected surveying documents making base for the modernization of EGiB, are discussed. They are used to solve the implementation and legal problems of real esate cadastre. Legal conditions were discussed. Since the end of the World War II these conditions changed dynamically in Poland.
The significant element of the article is comparing the results of the data in numbers and data in percentage, characterizing the state of the advancement of modernization of real estate cadastre in particular voivodeships, representing the areas of three partitions. The comparison of these results enabled the formulation of the relationship between the present state of advancement in the modernization of the inventory of land and buildings in the voivodeship, and geographic and historical conditions of the regions, for which the data was collected.

Keywords: Real estate cadastre; vector cadastral map; modernization of the register; history of the cadastre in Poland.
