In our earlier study, the land administration system in Saudi Arabia has been analyzed to develop the initial country profile based on LADM. The testing and validation of the initial country profile have shown that only the necessary information has been covered, and there is much critical information related to the property registration still not covered. Therefore, this paper proposes the methodology of improving the initial country profile by including new classes and attributes to the spatial and non-spatial classes. For the development of the LADM profile for the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, the following steps have been applied:
• Conducting interviews with the stakeholders to collect information about the
regulations of the land/building ownership.
• Validating and testing the current country profile.
• Collecting a real use case data to assess the model
