Session Chair: Cornelis de Zeeuw, Kadaster, Netherlands, The

The goals for land administration have been set: “land rights for all by 2030” (SDG’s). To achieve this, basic principles for land administrtion and data standards have been defined, that now should be brought to practice. This would help build sustainability, scalability, gradual development and affordability of land administration systems and approaches. The use of standards is essential and is now coming into a phase of practice.  It is shown that common agreement on these issues ask for common denominators in attributes, scale, time and location. ISO and OGC have a lead in the development of these standards. But donors, governments and private companies co-determine results and success. Open standards can be specifically developed for procurement and implementation of land administration systems.
