An important component of the administration and control of a colony by an external power was the demarcation and classification of the land and its people. This was certainly the case in Cyprus under British colonial rule (1878-1960), as three case studies demonstrate: the topographical survey of the island by H. H. Kitchener in 1878-1883; the cadastral survey of 1909-1929; and the work of the forest delimitation commission from 1881 to 1896. This was not achieved without resistance on a variety of levels. Ironically, part of the opposition came from the structure of the colonial demarcation and classification project itself.
