Abstract

Despite a history of more than 100 years and the introduction of provisional maps to support land registration, the Kenyan cadastre is largely incomplete. It consists of a patchwork of maps of different positional qualities, which would not be readily integrated to create a nation-wide coverage. This paper outlines the structure of the Kenyan cadastre and analyses the quality of the cadastral maps with regard to the requirements of modern land administration. From the assessment of the cadastre, it is suggested that the special characteristics of the maps be considered when integrating them. Towards this end, there is an on-going research to establish whether and how topographic datasets of higher positional quality could be used to improve the positional quality of such maps.
