After Peace Agreement 2016, new challenges in Land Administration and Land Tenure take relevance in Colombia. This document presents new perspectives on the challenges around land tenure in Colombia. We did three activities a SWOT analysis, a workshop on the research subject, and a literature review about the topics studied by the researchers. As a result, we found the internal and external relationships between Universidad Distrital, different actors, and trends in geoinformation science and land administration. For an efficient and reliable Land Administration System in the mid-term, Colombia needs articulation among different entities responsible for the different parts of the process. In that way, it is necessary to have an infrastructure for implementing multipurpose cadastre, tertiary roads, irrigation, electricity and connectivity, and areas of interest for conservation, which in Colombia are fundamental elements of the peace agreement for the comprehensive rural reform. This way, it is necessary
to provide the country with knowledge and information that integrates technical concepts, geospatial technologies, and data sources.
