Generated by delays in the registration of titles, costs and faltering registration procedures for official documents, land insecurity is an obstacle to the economic and social development of countries. In Uganda, a World Bank study showed that the average delay for the registration of titles was 270 days. It is within this context that the Ugandan government wished to modernise its procedures. IGN France International won a tender for the securing of property titles through the development of an unique land information system for the 6 departmental offices of the districts of Kampala, Mukono, Wakiso, Jinja, Masaka and Mbarara, as well as the establishment of a national land information centre.
• Design, implementation and installation of a land information system • Aerial photography and production of orthophotographs for the 6 districts • Geodetic and topographic work • Scan and vectorisation of existing paper maps, as well as the scan of titles and the rehabilitation of the most damaged ones • Provision of material • Training of local personnel for the new tools and procedures
