Parcel boundary adjustment of old cadastral maps with UAV images for efficient cadastral resurveying project in Rep. of Korea

Currently, high quality images taken by unmanned aerial vehicle have attracted great attention because of fast and low-cost acquirement of geo-spatial data. One of important applications is quality assessment of old maps by comparing the maps and images. Then, out-of-dated geo-spatial objects in the maps can be removed or new real-world entities which do not reflected in the maps can be updated. Moreover, low positional accuracy of objects in the map can be improved by means of finding corresponding features between the maps and images. In Rep. of Korea, the cadastral resurveying project is a national-wide government project to revise and update old graphic cadastral map into accurate digital cadastral data. Previous field surveying methods such as total station or GPS surveys require significant time and cost so that a new method with fast and low-cost acquirement of geo-spatial data needs to be developed. In this study, a map conflation technique to obtain corresponding geometries between an old cadastral map and a UAV image and adjust the map into the image is proposed and experimented.

Mass Registration of Land Parcels Using Fit-for-Purpose Land Administration: Procedures and Methods

Tarek Zein

Hansa Luftbild AG, Germany

In many countries land parcels have not yet been demarcated and registered. With no complete and accurate land register a country cannot effectively manage its land and resources. It will need to carry out mass registration and establish the land administration system necessary to ensure secure land tenure, which in turn can attract national and international investors. The fit-for-purpose land administration approach has been applied in many countries in Asia, Eastern Europe and Africa. When mass registration is necessary there are two main procedures / methods which may be followed. For the purposes of this paper the two procedures will be labelled respectively the Carta and Terra procedures: (1) the Carta procedure because community participation commences with marking up boundaries on an orthophoto map and (2) the Terra procedure because community participation commences with marking up boundaries on the ground before producing the orthophoto maps. Both these procedures adhere to the fit-for-purpose land administration approach principle, in that they are flexible, inclusive, participatory, affordable, reliable, attainable, and upgradable. Countries which plan to implement mass land registration can choose which of the two procedures fits them best or choose the procedure that combines the advantages of both methods.

Low Cost, Post Conflict Cadastre with Modern Technology

Brent Jones1, Christiaan Lemmen2, Mathilde Molendijk2

1Esri, United States of America; 2Kadaster International, Netherlands

As Colombia continues the long road to peace, they recognize a key component to sustained peace and economic growth will be their cadastre. Choosing not to implement a system with traditional approaches, Colombia is embracing new technology, innovative approaches and recognized standards. This presentation will detail the technology used including Android, survey accurate GPS, LADM, and ArcGIS Online combined with innovative ways to collect ownership information. This presentation will detail technology used and the status of progress in Colombia.

The e migration

Mariamu Ali El-Maawy

Ministry of Lands and Physical Planning Kenya, Kenya

Automating Land Services in Kenya has presented a unique challenge due to the various transitions in land legislation and administration.

The transformation has required deliberate action in a country accustomed to the specific tools commonly used in mobile phone platforms rather than online and e registers and transactions.

A multi dimensional approach to resolve, land Governance, land administration and sustainable land management in Kenya.
