Dear All,

the Social Tenure Domain Model (STDM) is a concept to model a continuum of people-to-land relationships in informal environments. Legacy cadastre and land registry software from the developed world has proven to lack flexibility and literally does not meet the bill, financially.

The Global Land Tool Network (GLTN) has closed this gap by developing fit-for-purpose STDM software tools under an Open Source license based on well known core technology including QGIS, PostGIS, GDAL/OGR and Sahana Eden. To further extend the functionality of these tools and also to improve the know-how in the region, GLTN organizes a code sprint.

The code sprint is free of cost to attend thanks to the kind sponsorship of GLTN and OSGeo. A formal application is required including a CV and a list of practical experience in the field. Find more details here:

There are limited travel grants available for applicants who fit the profile and preferably come from Africa, Asia, and South America. Application closes on March 31st. Register here: http://bit.ly/stdm-code-sprint

Please apply soon, seats are limited. This is hot. With FOSS4G 2018 coming up in Africa we really, really want to support and grow the African OSGeo Local Chapter!

Please feel free to forward to your domain, we are trying to avoid lots of cross postings.

Considered keywords include: land innformation, land administration, cadastre, social tenure, land rights, open source GIS, QGIS, PostGIS, LADM.

Thank you and best regards,

Arnulf Christl
