We present the results of an experiment into Participatory Land Administration (PLA), a VGI application, on customary lands. PLA connects emerging technologies to meet the current societal needs on customary lands, balancing the traditional government-led land administration with the emerging crowd-sourced land administration. The experiment is conducted in Nanton, a village in Ghana that needs a land administration system. The process was developed by the local farmers together with professionals based on the available technology and the local needs, in this case land consolidation. The experiment involved collecting farmland information over a two-week period based on PLA. Though the results show that PLA is faster, cheaper and can potentially support land consolidation, further investigation is needed for integration into the formal land administration system.
