Résumé partiel
The Fit-for-purpose land administration approach provides flexible solutions in the way spatial data is captured, and they are inclusive, participatory, affordable, reliable, attainable, and upgradable. FFP land administration consists of the spatial, legal, and institutional framework. The spatial framework mainly provides information on how land is occupied. It is also the foundation for land administration functions of recording and managing land tenure, assessing valuation, and managing land. As part of the spatial framework, a variety of cadastral mapping methods enabled by technological and technical advances have been used in land registration projects worldwide. Each method has its own characteristics, requirements, and outcomes, making them unique. The conventional methods are regarded to be expensive, time-consuming and have high accuracy requirements. Therefore, they do not accommodate the needs of developing countries and communities living in informal settlements. To meet the needs of the developing countries, alternative systems and approaches have been developed over the years, including the development of innovative land tools. However, there is limited studies done on comparing the innovative spatial data collection methods against conventional methods. There is also a lack of criteria for selecting spatial data collection methods for a specific country context. This study carries out a comparative research of the new its4land innovative methods, SmartSkeMa and Automatic Feature Extraction to identify indicators and use the indicators to compare the suitability of their suitability in Namibia. The research objective is to compare innovative methods against conventional methods. To meet the objective the research adopted a case study approach of the qualitative method. The research was conducted in Freedom Square, Gobabis. Semi-structured interviews, ranking questionnaires and parcel mapping were used to obtain primary data. In addition, aerial image, layout plan and reference points were obtained as secondary data. Data from the semi-structured interviews helped in identifying the methods used in Namibia, their characteristics and the actors involved.
