Abstract: Map based cadastre and land registries are core assets for sustainable land management and tenure security. The market for professional software packages is geared towards the needs of the developed world and follows a top-down approach. The developing world typically lacks the know-how to operate these tools, budgets are too small and the centralized operation of high-scale software often does not last beyond aid project life times. This results are lost data, lost investment and broken and unsustainable systems.

The Global Land Tool Network GLTN has set out to design a bottom-up approach to land tenure. The result is STDM. the Social Tenure Domain Model which was extensively presented at the World Bank Conference on Land and Poverty in 2015. This paper will highlight the architecture design, core software components and data security aspects of the next phase of the project: STDM Online. During the conference an Online presentation of the prototype and demo server will be given to attract the interest of early adopters and co-developers. STDM tool development does not focus on implementing one specific software or promotes a single product. Instead priority is given to sustainable solutions and highest possible interoperability with other systems while keeping private data secure.
