OGC's Land Administration Working Group – Building Bridges between communities

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 OGC's Standards Process and the Role of Reference Implementations

This presentation focuses on the role of reference implementations for the OGC standards process and gives an insight in the related OGC Compliance Program. OGC Standards are developed in the OGC Standards Program and follow rules and guidlines that have been set by the OGC's members. Before an OGC standard is adopted by the OGC membership, a public review period is required where non-members can also contribute. Increasingly, some standards working groups also decide to work more openly in the public (like the GeoPackage work group did) to be more inclusive. OGC interface standards also come with reference implementations. The OGC rules state that these have to be "free and publicly available for testing". Some well known OSGeo projects like GeoServer, MapServer, deegree and others are reference implementations of OGC standards. A Reference Implementation is a -> fully functional, licensed copy of a tested, branded software that has passed the test for an associated conformance class in a version of an Implementation Standard and that -> is free and publicly available for testing via a web service or download.
