Using Geo-spatial Data to Secure Property Rights

Using Geo-spatial Data to Secure Property Rights

SDG: 01 - No Poverty05 - Gender Equality

75% of the world's population does not have affordable access to formal systems to register and secure their land rights. The proposal aims to apply (big) geospatial data produced during previous World Bank innovation work to develop a new methodology for recording land rights using real-time user-generated boundaries captured with the help of orthophotos, GPS-enabled mobile phones, and open source software on tablets. This information can be used to (a) update already existing cadastral/registration maps or (b) complete cadaster records in cases where such maps and land rights information do not exist.
