Many land rights and land claims are based on social tenures and cannot be described in terms of conventional, parcel-based concepts. New forms of spatial units have therefore been needed for some time, and the Global Land Tools Network (GLTN) developed a model to accommodate these social tenures. It is called the Social Tenure Domain Model (STDM).


Since its inception, the STDM has been developed and piloted, and it is now being implemented to cater for the range of land rights that exist, including rights that are documented or undocumented, rights for individuals and groups, for pastoralists and slums dwellers; rights that are formal and informal, and those that are legal as well as extra-legal.


Within the International Federation of Surveyors (FIG), the STDM is seen, and is thus reviewed as, a pro-poor, participatory and affordable land tool.
