Abstract: In many developing countries, the absence of legal safeguards surrounding land tenure constitutes a very sever obstacle to the socio-economic development. The weakness of mechanisms for recording real rights and access to land information affects the operation of land market and decrease the confidence of the population towards the official system of protection of ownership rights. This causes the creation of an informal land market, which generates weak economies located outside of the legal property system. In such a context, international organizations like the World Bank, the International Federation of Surveyors and the United Nations encourage reforms of land administration system, by the development of new cadastral system, integrated into property register in the same land information system, benefiting from the development of new information technologies (Williamson, 1997) Present research aims at highlighting the existing conceptual bonds between the installation of a modern land administration system in Honduras. The methodology of the case study is used to analyze the application of Honduran property Law, which was adopted in 2004. The general hypothesis of the study stipulates that the installation of a multi-purpose cadastral information system is an operation preliminary and necessary to attack the objectives of the new property Law (which aims at reinforcing the safeguards of the land titles, municipal taxation and the control of land use). Since Spanish colonization, the Honduran land administration system has always treated the cadastre and the property register as two distinct entities. The old register of rights transactions thus becomes a true system for recording land title documents. This case study also highlights the importance of developing a national spatial data infrastructure, in order to support the local and national institutions, which take part in the process of decision-making in territorial maters (Ting and Williamson, 2000)
