Subject Area
Land administration is an ongoing concern in many countries of the world and less than 30% of the landcover is properly titled or surveyed. This lack leads to insecurity of tenure, economic barriers, land grabbing and is a major problem to resolving land conflicts. Land administration frameworks have to support a wide variety of regulatory and policy environments and interoperability is key in providing the necessary flexibility. In order to avoid the creation of yet another set of data silos OGC members set out to form a Domain Working Group (DWG) on Land Administration as a forum to explore existing interoperability standards and best practices in this domain. The presentation will focus on this newly established working group and introduce to some of the key points of interest. While there are some standards describing elements of an administrative system (for example ISO LADM), there is no consistent use of geospatial description of land records or adequate rules for defining and describing the quality of the records. The group will work to provide a common vocabulary for the locational aspects of land administration databases and will also be a forum for connecting suitable technology for data linkage and quality assessment. Some of the key players in the Land Administration domain have created Open Source tools like FLOSS SOLA (FAO) and STDM (GLTN and UN Habitat) which are based on core OSGeo technology and already make extensive use OGC standards.

the thank you so but the the
OGC's perspective on that ministrations yes I think that's time when I and my and my name is setting that can I worked for the OTC they're open to consort some and not directly that you perspective but what you're doing and then it's actually a well it's good that I'm last in this session because did the questions on the the presentations we had here this is where our work starts bringing together the people so a pattern I will explain you today in and what you're doing and the landed missed at ministrations Domain Working Group and this is
very close to say hot off the
press information and because we had to
start the work and I will start with a few words about the OTC and then know what is the which is due quote quotas know about the OTC here OK most of the people we are an international standards development organizations and 1 of our key key topics are India's interoperability so but still crisp cross-boundary information sharing Connie it continues to be 1 of our 1 of the biggest challenges and some of you have been at a previous session heard this already and I talk about cross-boundary information sharing it's not only the boundaries between countries but it's also the boundaries between organization and 1 country or even between departments in the same organization or the boundaries between you wouldn't need so the important thing is that we need to communicate and because the ability to access fuse and applied areas data sources is critical to situational awareness and I think sum of all the topic on land administration there's still a long way to go but to raise awareness of all the different players what their focuses what they're doing and and actually on movements and college he came to land administration this is more or less how I came to land this as well and then we realized on information a screw is crucial but there are people or organization that think the key point is due information and others for them this year information just an underlying asset so it's and they they don't have this focus they have another focus and we should be aware about the different focuses there alright correct but they're not always the same so what does the OGC do generally we develop open standards and associated standards press best practices and so if we if I say the old I'm mainly mean our members so I'm I work for OTC I have another 24 colleagues so we had 25 people working for the OGC we're facilitating the process and then we have all over 520 member organizations and they come up with their requirements they developed the standards they bring in their expertise and and we server the old she's the 1 the old to be the global forum for the collaboration and of geospatial data and solution providers and users so bringing together the people talking about their needs to raise awareness get an understanding what the other people are what the other organizations and need to be sure that we can all deliver the correct technology so data point C whatever and we are also providing an age Ireland and normative development environment to evolve test and validate and adopt open standards so
I said interoperability is 1 of the of the key factor was that wife you here and we were on different interoperability levels so there's an iron I took this and that's a screenshot from the European an interoperability framework and I think this matches very well with with war with power targets but there's a political context of course if you think about spatial data infrastructures especially in Europe think about inspire and legal interoperability and it's also important if you think about surveying then organisational interoperability and this is where we bring our members together in different working groups and to allow them to have a place to talk about the requirements then semantic interoperability this as the day in day to day work in OTC if if you start talking about something in another member has a different opinion than you start talking about it is its semantics Harry talking the same language and and too many technical interoperability I think that's probably the easiest because it's a straightforward and that we are providing a place where all these levels
can be addressed so we have over 20 of 525 member organizations they're coming from government industry and that the academic sector and research sectors so we have all the make private sector players down to a single consultants they all participate in the process so that's about 1 3rd of our membership then is 1 3rd government agencies that ministries but also local governments and as that a lot of universities and research centers so the 1 group bring requirements then we have technology providers they could provide solutions if they match was the requirements and then the innovation part that is looking ahead what is going on what could be the next step we have over 45 standards have developed in the OTC they're all open standards this means once they have been adopted by the membership they are publicly available and many of our standard sizes and that's because we were very closely together with the Hazel and many other alliance partners for example we had a session this morning and with the with dual because we have MOU with those to you and said we address did diverse domains so we have the range from I mentioned the classical cut duster information from the environment and for Information System hydrology ocean sciences and of course defends city modeling and so now we way that the newest area we are addressing is land administration and and I will show you what we're doing that and here we have haven't brought international user community is a lot of systems GIS system architectures use OGC standard are based on OTC centered on of just showed in ICDM that using OGC standards and they're are all over house and product implementations so products that are implementing OGC standards not all of them but single standards and and so you can find all this information on our
website and I have a few slides on the on the program on our
programs we have 4 major programs that's the communication rich program where we promote what we're doing we have a
compliance testing and certification program this is some aware that if you if you if you want to implement a system and you're looking for OGC compliant software you can go on our website and you can find which software see that implementing the standards wars even certified has certified as as a certified product and or if you're software company in and you have implemented the standard you can go on our website and registered your product and they interoperability program is yeah rapid prototyping and testing program program that brings together different organizations organizations that have real world scenarios needs they come together with the services provided technology providers and they test the standards the soft where the data if all of them is fit for purpose that happens and in the interoperability program and a my focus today the land administration domain Working Group as part of the standards program this is where the standards are developed we have to look kind of programs in order to kind sorry 2 kinds of what working groups that Standards Working groups this is where there's where the
standards are developed and we have so-called domain working
groups they focus on a special domain that can be hydrology that can be of mediation and that is also a land administration and the domain working groups they're taking existing OGC standards and check if they're fit for purpose for their special domain all the
activities are driven by the by a community needs so it's not that new staff members pushing for special topic but our members come up with recommendations so I another area that is
influencing or uh the standards development policy of course changing technologies who would have thought 20 years ago and about smartphones and yeah let's move on to the
land administration domain working group we have heard all this that's less than 30 % of the Earth's land and property and this properly titled or surveyed and so on the World Bank and the United Nations being a member in the OTC they they ask you for for the development or few if you could set up the domain and the land administration domain Working Group and as of June 2016 just a couple of month ago we have official land administration domain Working Group and on this presentation I have a link to the charter so you can download the charge so for what does the group to the purpose and business cases is that we're looking at how to improve the interoperability effectiveness and efficiency of land administration systems by optimizing the use of OGC standards and but not only OGC standards but are also other standards so we know there are many systems out there and that somehow they're kind of societal it's not that they're working together or that they're interoperable so this is 1 purpose of the group and we also want to the group wants also to examine the land administration process from the Land Survey Organization through URIs indiction levels and this will of course be done with partner organizations so the pod organizations are existing members in OGC or we invite them um and I said at the beginning you provides every we want to be where the forum for connecting suitable technology for data linkage and quality assessment but the drink that the land administration domain Working Group and is generated composed of OGC members and and experts from the broader community that have a specific interests or and intend to solve problems in a particular domain and in this case it's the land administration domain and we have regular old she technical committee meetings where the people need but we have also you can participate online and so the 1st ad hoc meeting for the land administration direct took place in March and just prior to the world bank lands and poverty conference and there for example we had include lemon from from the contest and I'll and FIG talking about the fit-for-purpose land administration and showing what they have been doing what they have where I there requirements than arm presented on the social 10 your domain model and as we already explained that is using already ISO standards and OGC standards and then we have to have some officials from the World Bank talking about their requirements and participants where a lot of members so it it is again this this connecting people bringing together this is what I have this is what I need this is what I can provide and and now the next step is to 0 to come together and identify are there any gaps do we need to to bridge technologies are the existing standards that are are there are there are fit for purpose does this work and this is not the the next step for the for the domain Working Group and here is said that if requirements cannot be satisfied by the current OGC standards and and this is not the perspective from the old the group can bringing or a comment change requests to it to an existing standards for example is used if the land administration but if the STD TDM would have a change request this can be brought into the Standards Working Group can join the group home and I would have loved to give you the link was the mailing list but my colleague said he's just about to put it out so it's probably 5 more days on end there I will probably treated or put it in the presentation so you can and all of the presentation and weeks time and because the land administration domain Working Group is open to the to to OGC members of course and then to the general public standards working groups are only for OGC members but the main working groups can decide if they want to be open or not so in the domain that land administration click decided on that they are open to everyone who wants to can join the mailing list and participate in the in the conversation bring in your requirements and so on and actually this is a call for participation behold really for the dialog between the geospatial community and the broader land administration community as I said at the beginning probably we from the from the geospatial community are very focused on the geospatial aspects and I am and meanwhile that there are other people they don't think like that so and we need to learn what's what would your needs are and vise versa you need to understand what we can provide with the community can provide and as said to be in the united nations in the world and being members and they play of course an important role in in raising the interest in land administration activities within the old she's what can we get from that some well the broader software industry open source software developers and service providers would get a better understanding hopefully it off the technical interoperability needs and off the land administration community and the land administration users will get a better understanding of the existing technical standards and in the geospatial domain and how they can use them and if the to wake of the group is successful then in the long run users will be able to find open standards specifically developed for procurement for example or implementation and of land administration systems and yeah
uh but I have to
1 more minute so I I I think we really have to tools communicate what do we mean with land administration do we think about pro-poor movements do we think about the built environment they're building information modeling is this addressing the same are we on the same plate and I think this is the most challenging aspects of and it and that's why is something I a I really want to give to the 2 you will hear and to our land administration domain Working Group and because that is so I think that's the has the biggest potential of misunderstanding and here so summarizing as a
re of uh avoids reinventing the wheel d'application of work and efforts interoperability and open standards as is a help to sustain investments so if you want to do something in this domain look what is out there and stick on open standards think about interoperability because someone might want to use your data in a different system and you would like to give this person excess and key to success contribution and cooperation on international level having you here that sorry quite international so some clothing
source of closing thoughts from David Chan and founder interoperability seems to be about the integration of information what it's really about what to think or that is that coordination of organizational behavior so thank you very much and
so that thank you are there any questions or is a picture
from that is an unmet Street and through but that
any other questions cell lever arm in the middle of nowhere the and people always ask where do you come from where do you go to and we learned that the distance shouldn't be too low to begin with said OK we want to go there and then said and you have to hurry because the bridge closes at 7 o'clock and that was pretty close at 7 o'clock arriving at 7 30 by the time the evening at this present was close to which means that took they had taken the would the way because there was a much flow coming down and because it was hairy raining are higher in the in the Andes so they and they don't have a lot of the forest of trees there so they secure every evening that took a particle way the Brits and every morning will put it back again so we now have where there are no Brits couldn't cross this meant that the floor mat river so we went back again because that this value was as a well I did geomorphic morphology at school at the university and I hope I don't want to see if there is let's go somewhere higher and the next morning babe that put to at up the bit again from through of
and just 1 question how to access the slides because you in general for this conference because he said in a few weeks time so it's possible to get an the I think that well the idea is that a slight and can be downloaded after the press after the conference some because a lot of people already have the pdfs so they're are probably already in a few days online so you go to the program and then you click on the on the title of the presentation and then you can download the material so you pages something from see for the main article about it not yet but it's I I was looking and and I contacted my microglia colonists and he's got there is on there and use that all his he around but it it it will come and I will put it on on on the slides and indeed you can contact me and I have a question since used to call for for participation you know being the next meetings of domain Working Group like this on a meeting at the next EC meeting for example so it has been planned as said that the the group is currently In the formation process we still we don't have a mailing list and so currently the communications through typing in all the e-mail addresses of the people were interested in September we have an OTC meeting of the OGC Technical Committee meeting this is when all members come together that takes place in our land law on that of September I don't know the exact date and there the Domain Working Group and the land administration domain working group will meet and then usually the communication so we have for such technical committee meetings per year September will be land or December will be in Taiwan on March will be in Delft in the Netherlands and in between those face to face meetings by the way you can also participate remotely in these meetings that we have for communication takes place so mailing list but if necessary then they organize telephone conferences so depending on the on on the needs and urgencies hot topics that needs to be dust discussed in the Working Groups OK thank you very much in the thinking of knowledge to recover pretty generates the
