The City of Cape Town has recently implemented Computer Assisted Mass Appraisal
(CAMA) for the purposes of generating market values of approximately 550 000 residential
properties in the Metropolitan City of Cape Town. Market valuations are used as the basis for
property taxation at local government level, and are critical in the provision of income for
effective provision of services and management of the City. This paper begins with a general
introduction of current research projects which focus on this case study in particular, and on
fiscal cadastral reform in general. It then describes the General Valuation Project 2000
(GV2000) and identifies the technology of CAMA as a primary element within a complex
system of fiscal cadastral reform. The paper identifies the predominant forces which drove
reform in the case of Cape Town, and the risks associated with it. The mechanisms used to
resolve disputes, and their outcomes, are described. A description of the current status of the
GV2000 project concludes the paper.
