|It is a pleasure to announce the upcoming release of version
1.0 of the Social Tenure Domain Model (STDM) tool, including its
source codes from GLTN. The land tool is a product of several years
of conceptualization, design, development, field testing and
implementation by various partners of the Network. It is one of the
flagship land tools that GLTN is developing to promote the continuum
of land rights approach and to offer an alternative and affordable
land information tool to strengthen tenure security, improve
livelihoods and empower poor communities.
STDM, a specialization of the Land Administration Domain Model (ISO
19152:2012), will highlight new improved features and enhancements in its
first release, including the ability by users (not programmers or
developers!) to customize the tool for their purpose. It will be officially

(FIG) on the 20th June 2014 in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.
In preparation for its launch, GLTN, particularly in partnership with the
