Indonesia Web Map

The Geospatial Information Agency (BIG) has launched the platform with an interactive element for citizen engagement. The map hopes to solve border issues with forested areas, as well as other updates. Citizens can draw lines or squares representing buildings, and these requests go back to the institution for verification and update. Citizens are required to register before making updates.

This open and transparent effort aims to help resolve some land dispute issues with indigenous groups as well as to adhere to many Reduced Emissions from Deforestation and Degradation (REDD+) management efforts. Indigenous groups are particularly being encouraged to participate and submit their map claims for review.
