Abstract: The objectives of this study are: 1) to determine the efforts made by the government on law enforcement in the implementation of the land registration system and the procedure of issuing certificates of land rights in Indonesia, 2) to determine the legal responsibilities of the Head of the Agrarian Affairs and Spatial Planning/Head of the National Land Agency regarding double certificates issued in the implementation of land registration, and 3) to determine the function and usefulness of the Global Positioning System (GPS) in the implementation of land registration in its relevance to law enforcement in the land sector in Indonesia. The research method used is a normative juridical legal research method that refers to legal norms. The legal materials used are primary binding legal materials that consist of Undang-Undang Nomor 5 Tahun 1960 (Act Number 5 of 1960), Peraturan Pemerintah Nomor 24 Tahun 1997 (Government Regulation Number 24 of 1997) and Peraturan Menteri Agraria dan Tata Ruang/Kepala Badan Pertahanan Nasional Nomor 12 Tahun 2017 (Minister of Agrarian Affairs and Spatial Planning/Head of the National Land Agency Regulation Number 12 of 2017) concerning the Acceleration of Complete Systematic Land Registration (CSLR) and other regulations relating to land issues. Secondary legal materials are taken from various books on agrarian affairs, seminar results, scientific works, research results, and journals. Data is analyzed using logical thinking in deduction and induction.Act Number 5 of 1960 concerning Basic Regulations on Agrarian Principles (Basic Agrarian Law), Government Regulation Number 10 of 1961 and Government Regulation Number 24 of 1997 both of which regulate Land Registration and Minister of Agrarian Affairs and Spatial Planning/Head of the National Land Agency Regulation Number 12 of 2017 concerning the Acceleration of Complete Systematic Land Registration (CSLR) and other regulations are a manifestation of the government’s efforts in the field of development in regulating and handling land issues. These laws and government regulations are made in the context of law enforcement in the land sector. One form of improvement in Government Regulation Number 24 of 1997, namely in terms of accelerating the measuring and mapping of land plots that must be registered it is possible to use modern technology, such as the Global Positioning System (GPS) and computerized processing and storage of data. One of the functions and uses of the Global Positioning System (GPS) is for geographic information systems, such as for map making, measuring border distances, or can be used as reference measurements for an area. That is, by using the Global Positioning System (GPS) in measuring a plot of land the coordinates of said plot will be easily determined which will ultimately minimize the occurrence of land disputes.
