A Blended Learning Course Design in Fit for Purposes’ Cadastral Survey
Background to the Project
This project is set in Indonesia, the home of millions of land parcels spreading across numerous populated islands, both big and small islands, many of which have not been mapped and registered by the country. Under the current legal and institutional framework, systematic land titling activities from village to village are expensive and take a long time to complete. Land titling activities are impossible without a complete cadastral map and active participation from communities and government officers.
