Session Overview
06-03: What role for data standards to sustain land administration services?
Wednesday, 21/Mar/2018:
10:30am - 12:00pm

Session Chair: Cornelis de Zeeuw, Kadaster, Netherlands, The
Location: MC 2-800

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.

Global Cooperation and Gains – Land Administration Standards - A Call to Further Action

Trevor Taylor

OGC, United States of America

Updating and modernizing interoperability for land administration and harmonizing existing efforts is complex and requires continued strong collaboration amongst standards development organizations, associations, and societies. Established and emerging Standards, models, domains, best practices and technologies including, but not limited to , OGC’s LandInfra, OGC CtiyGM/GML, ISO 19152 LADM, LandXML, BIM/IFC/3d Cadaster, Distributed Ledgers and Crypto location , RDF/Linked Data, GeoJSON , unified code list management and others are all pieces of the puzzle that hold the potential to improve global land administration. From an operational perspective, it is proposed the great gains made by the global community’s cooperation and collaboration move to the next step, which is the development of a pilot to help test how the various pieces, including implementations from technology providers, can help using scenarios that mimic operational requirements, with a focus on emerging nations.


Commercial Software and Interoperability

People all over the world and across every field use ArcGIS to integrate and unify

data to make better decisions and empower people to see and share information

holistically. ArcGIS users have created countless essential GIS applications

across hundreds of thousands of organizations. For over 40 years, Esri has

focused on interoperability as a basic design principle of our products.

The ArcGIS platform is engineered to be open and interoperable. To create an

open system, Esri has adopted a multifaceted approach, which includes the

IT and Standards in Practice

Processes and transactions in Land Administration are outside the scope of the Land Administration Domain Model Edition I published in 2012. Reason is that processes were considered to be country specific. Generic processes would be too difficult to model. This view needs reconsideration – given developments as Fit-For-Purpose Land Administration, Apps and blockchain.

In many countries different organizations have their own responsibilities in data maintenance and supply, but may communicate on the basis of standardised administrative and technical update processes. Operationalisation and implementation of LADM requires attention to this aspect - at least at conceptual level (not prescriptive). This will an issue in the development of LADM Edition II and this is the issue that is explored in this paper.
