Topic Talk - Open Source Opportunities for Land Management

Lab

Access to land, land ownership and tax on real property are the key assets of any national economy. Good governance in land management is a key factor for social stability, prosperity and economic development. One key component for good land management is location based data and the information that be derived thereof. Many nations still even lack basic maps to help identify issues in land governance. With the growing availability of air borne and satellite acquired geospatial data, Open Data projects like OpenStreetMap are growing and start to play an increasingly important role for land management, especially in the so called developing world. This Topic talk will explore the opportunities Open Source tools provide for processing and analyzing geospatial data for Land Management. The associated open governance models are key to the success of implementing sustainable solutions on nationwide distributed systems based on the mantra of thinking globally and acting locally.
