Site Based Data Modelling for Indigenous Land Tenure Systems

Abstract

The Native Title Act (1993) and the Aboriginal Land Rights Act (NT) (1976) add an extra layer of consideration to land tenure interests in Northern Australia. Traditional Indigenous perspectives follow a site based ontology which is still practiced across most parts of Northern Australia. This paper presents preliminary research into a site based spatial data model for tracking Indigenous Land Tenure.
