About LADM

LADM is a common standard for the land administration domain. It will stimulate the development of software applications and will accelerate the implementation of proper land administration systems that will support sustainable development.

The LADM covers basic information-related components of land administration (including those over water and land, and elements above and below the surface of the earth).

The standard provides an abstract, conceptual model with four packages related to:

  • parties (people and organizations);
  • basic administrative units, rights, responsibilities, and restrictions (ownership rights);
  • spatial units (parcels, and the legal space of buildings and utility networks);
  • spatial sources (surveying), and spatial representations (geometry and topology);

LADM defines terminology for land administration, based on various national and international systems, that is as simple as possible in order to be useful in practice. The terminology allows a shared description of different formal or informal practices and procedures in various jurisdictions. The standard further provides a basis for national and regional profiles, and enables the combining of land administration information from different sources in a coherent manner.
