has amassed a huge collection of records since 1902 when the colonial
government put in place the Crown Land Ordinance of 1902. This law
allowed alienation of native lands for the colonial masters and the
alienation process involved formal registration of ownership rights.
Over the years, a number of laws touching on land were passed and
operationalized, with the effect of having land administration and
registration being exercised under different legislative regimes. All
the documentation produced from land transactions over these years
have continued to be kept in paper form. This has seen a big number
of these documents get destroyed by normal aging processes, lost
through untracked paper trails and from corruption driven motives.
The Institute of Geomatics, GIS and Remote Sensing (IGGReS) of Dedan Kimathi University of Technology was one of the institutions that won the RCMRD/SERVIR EASTERN AND SOUTHERN AFRICA SMALL GRANTS PROGRAM in 2014.The project ran from October 2014 to June 2015 and the main aims of the
research were the identification of the various data needs to support land
administration in Kenya, identification of various workflow involved in
land transactions that can be captured, and identifying those that need
to be incorporated in the pilot project.
The project involved wide applications of various GIS platforms ensuring all proposed sections were captured and incorporated. Below were some of the results of the project;
