Land administration system includes the processes of land registration, cadastral mapping, land valuation and land inventory. Developing countries particularly Nigeria, is faced with challenges of poor land administration and management. Traditional approaches to the land administration have resulted in the delay of the processes of land titling and registration. However, it was discovered from previous works and available literatures that there is no model, blue print or database management system of activities in land administration in the study area. The delay in time and process of getting the certificate of occupancy (C of O) coupled with the corruption in land related activities calls for urgent intervention of all the stakeholders in land administration. In this study, Land Administration Domain Model (LADM) which was approved by International Standard Organization (ISO) TC/211 in 2012 was introduced as a reference model and standard for land administration. Validation and comparing of the physical content of land administration system in the study area were made against LADM to verify the possibilities of its adoption into the system. An online network of the processes involved in land registration was also done. A dynamic web was designed using PhP My Admin SQL to create dynamic database management system. A user-friendly and more secured database management system was produced for the specification of LADM on the software platform that offers support for the transformation. Based on these findings, it was concluded that Nigerian land administration system can adopt the standard by mapping in some of the core concepts of LADM into her cadastral system because the model is suitable for the country. However, the determination of the country profile for Nigeria is next in priority.
