Scalable Platform Based On Open Source For Land Administration Systems

Sergiy Lizenko, Maksym Kalyta, Vasyl Melnychuk

Innola Solutions, Inc., United States of America

There is a strong tendency in the developments of national land administration projects funded by World Bank, USAID and other organizations to promote the solutions based open source.

Many proven technologies for specific land information components are based on open source. Unfortunately, segmental use of the open source and problems of integration and scaling up into national level system resulted in the overall low-efficiency of the efforts.

A group of seasoned professionals decided the time is ripe to change the game. Everywhere the ICT became a driver of the enterprises aligning with new business goals. Why not in land administration?

This article describes establishment of National Land Information System (NLIS) based on open source stack. The team of Innola Solutions (USA) has built a new land information platform – Innola Framework. In cooperation with IGN FI and GEOFIT (France), the consortium has implemented Uganda NLIS and work on other projects.


Harmonizing Laws and Regulations with New Technologies and Innovations in Land Administration

Tarek Zein

Hansa Luftbild AG, Germany

Over the last decade innovative technologies and methods have been developed to demarcate land parcels and register land rights in an inexpensive and swift way. These technologies, such as rectified imagery are now used by the fit-for-purpose land administration approach in order to register land rights systematically. Though these innovative technologies have been applied in some developing countries there is a time lag between such developments and existing land legislation. The land legislation in developing countries often appears to be out of date. In addition, the lack of or the existence of difficult to implement UAV regulations is hindering the drone operators to fly UAVs, making the usage of drones problematic. This paper presents a case study of some of the countries and describe their current drone regulations and land laws and recommends a harmonization of laws and regulations with new land registration methods and technologies.


Interconnected Donors: Sustainable Development from Pilot to Delivery at Scale

How do we implement pilot projects so that they deliver sustainable, equitable, and efficient service delivery at scale? We believe the answer involves long-term donor commitment focusing on sustainable results through increased donor cooperation, through communication, flexibility, and gender equality. Sustained donor support provides the need time to achieve deliverables and ensure deep and extensive local commitment at all levels. This paper will show how we can improve the impact of our work and projects to make a sustainable difference in the everyday life of citizens. The authors of this paper have extensive international experience working with donors, the private sector, national cadastral systems, mapping and real property registration organizations, and international non-profit organizations. The parties are jointly working to ensure a more cost-efficient, sustainable, and equitable support to beneficiaries in developing countries.


Sharing Information to make better decisions about our World

Trevor Taylor

Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC), United States of America

Geospatial information and associated technologies are key to achieving resilience of local to national land management. The seamless ability to capture, visualize and manage land administration information relies on a level of interoperability that allows public and private sector information to be combined and organized efficiently for enhanced land management. New standardized ways to leverage, process, fuse and apply location data from imagery, drones/UAVs, mobile phones and a plethora of increasing inexpensive location aware devices is changing the norm in ways that strengthen land governance, sustainable land use, and/or support land administration services in urban and/or rural settings.
