Developing a Land Administration Domain Model (LADM) profile for a country is an important process. This enables sound management of land and facilitates complete Land Administration covering cadaster, registry, valuation, taxation and land use. By considering the current processes in that country, their legal or customary framework, an ideal model can be developed. Kenya has four requirements that were identified and addressed as key considerations. The ISO LADM packages and sub package were considered necessary, while most classes were adopted with additional attributes, code lists and multiplicities. Expert
opinion on the model was solicited to inform and validate the model. The model presents a starting point for modernizing and completing the land administration process in Kenya. The modernization includes data exchange and interoperability, data and system integration, deployment model, workflows, capacity development and change management.
