Obtaining geo-data and attributes of spatial units from heterogeneous database systems with different data formats for the same land properties is still one of the main problems. The emerging technologies, such as decentralized databases, distributed networks and big data powered by blockchain, can potentially improve land registration processes. In this article, I developed a data model for a geospatially enabled blockchain infrastructure, using an object-oriented architecture model. Such a model can better find spatio-temporal patterns of land transactions and better query time-varying locations of land properties. Additionally, it will make the land registry system secure and protect privacy.
