Using High-resolution Imagery to Improve Land Records in Indian States: Opportunities and Challenges

Shankar Nelamangala

DigitalGlobe, India

Federal Ministry of Rural Development / Department of Land Records are the Nodal Department to promote this Program in India. State Government, Revenue Department: Survey and Settlement Commissioner is the Executing body. Update and convert all the age old paper records and land holding details (ROR) with Digital transaction records, using Visual Information Technology/GIS embedded Geo coded pictures of each and every land parcel.

3.3Million Sqkm land area with multibillion parcels of Record of Rights(ROR) are to be updated .Multi Trillion $ land value ranging from $1000/Sqft to few $ /Sqft based on location and market demand.29 States and 7 Union Territories governed by different political party governments and heterogonous cultural citizens are the real stake holders

A Revolutionary program with a great value to Citizens and the Governments is in Progress for Public Good and wealth management.

Haryana state has completed the updating the records for full state using very high resolution satellite imagery, Madhya Pradesh covering about 308000 SqKM area has made significant progress more than 200,000 SqKM area has been covered with satellite imagery and project is in advance state.

Quantifying Extent and Impact of Large Scale Land Transfers: Evidence from Malawi’s Estate Sector

Fang Xia1, Klaus Deininger2

1University of International Business and Economics, Beijing, China, People's Republic of; 2The World Bank, USA

We combine data from complete computerization of all large leases in Malawi with satellite imagery and a geo-coded farm survey to document opportunities and challenges of land-based investment in novel ways. We find that, with 1.5 mn. ha (of which some 140,000 ha are registered twice) area under estates is larger than previously estimated. Some 70% of agricultural leases expired, reducing tenure security and public revenue from lease fees. Remotely sensed imagery suggests that only 42% of estate land is under crops and less than 20% of estates crop more than two thirds of their land. Comparing production and yields between estates and smallholders using survey data also suggests that estates are less productive than smallholders. Small farmers cultivating on an estate (encroachers) are less likely to grow a second crop and use less irrigation or inputs, reducing yields but proximity to estates is associated with higher input use, suggesting positive spillovers. To prevent that the option to demarcate customary estates under the new Land Act will further exacerbate tenure insecurity, initiatives to this end will need to be preceded by efforts to clarify boundaries and the status of leases for existing estates.

Using Drones for Mapping Zanzibar

Edward Anderson

World Bank group, Tanzania

The Zanzibar Mapping Initiative is a 2016 - 2017 pilot exercise to deploy survey mapping drones to map both islands of Zanzibar at 7cm resolution, and urban areas at 2.5cm resolution. The project is a collaboration of the Zanzibar Commission for Lands, the Tanzania Commission for Science and Technology, World Bank and State University of Zanzibar.

This presentation will shows capability of land digitization using survey drones, lessons learned and results to date as well as observations on fitness for use in Land Administration.
