A colleague of mine who works at the Makerere GIS lab did something 
quite similar with "regular" GIS 2 years or so ago.

Send him a message if you want to know more: info at karl-tiller.de

Personally I am doubtful if mapping will solve to underlying resource 
conflicts and different livelihood styles, but it might be a first step.
Note though that any kind of formalization of land-owner ship is 
ultimately a advantage for farmers (usually the richer ones) and a 
disadvantage for pastoralists that depend on communal land (especially 
the poorer ones).
