LandMark is a dynamic, online mapping platform that provides critical information on the collective land and natural resource rights of Indigenous Peoples and local communities around the world. The global platform supports local livelihoods and well-being by increasing the visibility of indigenous and community lands and presenting crucial information on the state of land rights.
LandMark: The Global Platform of Indigenous and Community Lands displays georeferenced information on collectively-held and used lands worldwide. It consolidates the numerous ongoing local, national, and regional efforts to map and document indigenous and community lands within a single global platform.
LandMark aims to display the best-quality data available from reputable organizations and recognized experts, but does not endorse or verify the accuracy of any dataset. The platform includes maps and data on indigenous and community lands that are publicly available as well as information directly from individuals and organizations with their permission.
At the Community level, LandMark provides a common platform for hosting data on the locations of indigenous and community lands as provided by individuals and organizations around the world with expertise in land rights, including often in mapping and documenting rights.
