Thanks for the Responses
>From what we gathered on ground, people still use trees, stones and paths
as points of reference when determining where the boundaries of their plots
are. And the other issue is the plots of land keep on reducing in size when
a father redistributes to his children.

I think if we got information about ownership (Land Titles) from the
district land office and made it open where everyone can access it. or even
produce a map out of that information using any other tools like QGIS then
it can be a good starting point.

@Karl, what tools do you hope to use to build the infomation system?
