A modern, configurable, secure, scalable solution

Land is an essential resource that supports nearly every aspect of our social and economic well-being. As a finite resource, it is necessary to govern and manage land effectively for social stability, sustainable economic development, and equitable taxation. GIS technology helps in managing all aspects of land information and land records including land tenure, value, management, and use. With all land information in a GIS-based comprehensive land administration system, governments are able to improve land information management, property valuation and analysis, and communication with the public. 

Deliver necessary systems on a single platform

The three necessary systems in land administration are the system of record (land parcels), the system of insight (valuation), and the system of engagement (stakeholder and public engagement). GIS efficiently delivers all three on a single platform. Having these systems on a single platform allows governments to accurately represent and understand property value as well as provide secure and authoritative land records and parcel data for widespread government and public use.
