Learn to use cadastral intelligence for designing and applying responsible land administration solutions
LAND is at the basis of all societies. An effective land administration means secure land tenure, efficient land markets, support to urban and regional planning and land development. It contributes to developing and supporting local economies, reducing poverty as well as helping to avoid land-related disputes. Unfortunately, less than a quarter of the world’s countries maintain a complete land administration system based on appropriate geo-information management. Would you like to be a change agent supporting countries to achieve and sustain societal stability and prosperity? Then ITC’s specialization in Geo-information Management for Land Administration is your perfect choice.
INFORMATION on land tenure and property rights, value, and use of land are crucial to offering tenure security to all, implement land reform, support the land market, poverty reduction, food security, preserve the environment and nature conservation. This course provides you with the knowledge and skills you need to design and apply responsible land administration solutions in an environment of rapidly evolving technologies to address real-life challenges. To this end, we take a multi-disciplinary approach, with considerable emphasis on Geospatial technologies and Geo-information management embedded in the local socio-political context.
TECHNOLOGIES to obtain theoretical and practical knowledge about cadastral data acquisition, database and Geo-information modelling for land administration, land information systems and 3D cadaster. We offer courses on securing land tenure and property rights, land policy and land management, organizing land administration and innovative approaches for cadastral data acquisition and dissemination. This ranges from advanced technologies like the use of Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) to participatory methods for data collection. Responsible land governance and fit-for-purpose land administration are the guiding principles in the program.
Our courses provide you with the knowledge and skills you need to design and apply responsible land administration solutions in an environment of fast raising technologies to address real-life challenges. To this end, we take a multi-disciplinary approach, with considerable emphasis on geospatial technologies and geo-information management embedded in the local socio-political context.

We offer academic and professional education in-house and online in a distinctive international setting. We educate young- and mid-career professionals, where, the current trends move towards academic education rather than professional training and lifelong learning via e-learning rather than one-time training. For your MSc research, you’ll have the option of joining forces with dedicated ITC research group: People, Land and Urban Systems – PLUS.
This specialization is part of the Master's Geo-information Science and Earth Observation.
We work in close cooperation with The Netherlands' Cadastre, Land Registry and Mapping Agency (Kadaster), under our joint initiative of the School for Land Administration Studies. This guarantees that our education benefits from the practical and technological knowledge of Kadaster both in the Netherlands as well as abroad in the domain of land administration.
Be the change agents capable to design and apply responsible land administration solutions to address real-life challenges. Upon graduation, land sector agencies, such as national cadasters or ministries dealing with land, as well as local and international NGOs, will be interested in your services as a land professional. Our programmes prepare you also to become a private practitioner or start an academic career in land administration.
ITC has entered into partnerships with reputable qualified educational institutes for the purpose of providing joint courses in several countries. Under this arrangement, (part of) the programme, leading to a diploma in Geo-information Science and Earth Observation from the University of Twente, can be conducted at the partner institute.
