Workshop C&LR KEN: Break out session
Revision of Cadastre and Land Registry Vision Statement
Some food for thought from FIG 2010
Pick ups from different Sydney sessions
• Cadastral Futures - building a new vision for the
nature and role of cadastres (Rohan Bennett, Abbas
Rajabifard, Mohsen Kalantari, Jude Wallace, Ian
• CADASTRE 2014: New Challenges and Direction
(Anna Krelle, Abbas Rajabifard)
• Cadastre 2014 – Australia and NZ; now and the future
(Bill Hirst)
• Can the Innovative Use of Mobile Phones Support
More Effective Land Administration Services? (Robin
Contemporary drivers for the cadastre
• Political and legal (global and financial crisis, sustainable
development, climate change, MDGs/Poverty reduction,
eGovernment/social inclusion)
• Environmental (extreme weather events, sea-level rises)
• Technological (integration of CAD and GIS, 3D visualization,
wireless sensor networks, GNSS, volunteered data, Google
Earth /Maps, Internet, eServices/WEB 2.0)
• Socio-economic (urbanization of the population, globalization)
• Spatial enablement, spatial data infrastructures
Future Cadastres
Global or regional
• The need for frameworks to manage rights, restrictions and
responsibilities must be acknowledged. Cadastre will show the
complete legal situation of land, including public rights and
restrictions, i.e. all interests in land
• These frameworks must be adaptable and flexible to
accommodate the new rights, restrictions and responsibilities
that may emerge in the future
• Abolishment of separation between ”maps” and ”registers” (also
others than land titles) has potential benefits such as reduced
cost for users, increased efficiency of processes, easy
information updates, reduced redundancy and reduced risk of
• While modeling will certainly become more prominent, cadastral
mapping still has and will continue to have a role in the future
• Consider implications of legal coordinates to define cadastral
• Recognize the varying social and cultural environments in which
cadastral systems operate, in particular: country readiness,
capacity, for developed countries – investment into
developments such as SDI and eGovernment for value add
• Still true to say that Cadastre will be highly privatized. Public and
private sector are working closely together. It aligns with the
pressures from society for efficient, reliable and customer
service approaches, and follows trends for increased investment
from private sectors into the area of spatial information. But
country context is important.
• Acknowledge the potential that new developments such as SDI,
SEG and Google can offer for cost recovery. Must acknowledge
country context in which the statement is applied
Volunteered data – Use of mobile phones
• Mobile phones have made a bigger difference to the lives of
more people, more quickly, than any previous communications
• They have spread the fastest and proved the easiest and
cheapest to adopt.
• Mobile phones are already changing the developing world Agricultural information services for prices, weather and farming
tips, gathering health information in the field to help manage
drug stocks, verifying the authenticity of drugs
Potential Mobile Land Administration Services
Accessing Customer Information Services
Recording Ownership Rights
Obtaining Title
Accessing Land Information
Paying Mortgage Instalments
Marketing Real Estate
Participating in Development Control/Planning
• The drivers for change are clear – urbanization, globalization,
climate change, good governance, environmental management,
disaster management, technology
• The increasing and innovative use of mobile phones in the
developing world is fast turning them into a global development
tool that is changing people’s lives and improving GDP across
The challenge for Land Professionals is
not just to replicate the elements of the
current services using mobile phones,
but to radically rethink land
administration services using this new,
innovative citizen centric paradigm!

Existing vision provides a basis
Developments, various in nature, require a new approach
During this session, we like to acquire input from you the members
This sessions focuses on 3 questions:
• What developments and activities require adoption in the new vision?
• What are your expectations/what would you like to be achieved?
• How can we meet these expectations?
• Share results with audience/follow up
