Our company has created a unique methodology and workflow process for GIS FOR LAND USE for governments and municipalities.

Towards that purpose, the company has assembled a special group of experts in town planning and in GIS, to take advantage of the expertise of both.

Our methodology enables us to build the most basic and important layers in the GIS for government, and is used as a basic tool in producing such information systems. Using this methodology results in the high quality of the results that we can achieve.

Traditionally, land use projects were planned using lots and parcels as a background, taking into consideration physical land conditions, topography, aims of the urban planners, etc.

Our GIS solution for land use was developed in consideration of the local laws in each project area and can easily be adapted to most of the requirements of each client.

In order to achieve high quality and effective results from the land use GIS application, it is crucial to perform data collection in the correct way.

Below is the data collection workflow process for GIS for land use:

1. Collecting all of the existing computer files or hard copy land use plans for each lot of the project area, and ordering them chronologically
from the most recent plan to the oldest plan.
2. Scanning the collected hard copy plans with a color scanner.
3. Assimilating and data processing of the scanned raster files.
4. Adaptation of the plans to the cadaster - raster to vector processes.
5. Assimilating the relevant alphanumeric information of the plans to the GIS land use application.
6. Compilation of all the graphic files to create the updated layer of land use of the requested area.
7. Quality control of the graphic stage considering the adaptation of the computerized information to the hard copies of the town plans.
8. Getting statutory confirmation of the correctness of all the land uses of the compilation from the authorities in the government or local

The alphanumeric and graphic information that will be derived from the GIS land use application in the municipality information center or over the Internet is:

1. For each request of land use information, which lots and parcels are involved.
2. Breakdown of all the requested land use details in a specified report format pertaining to the specific lots and parcels.
3. Details of building rights of the requested area.
4. The identity of the party that initiated the relevant town plan.
5. The history of the town plan development and how it changed over time.
6. The planner who created the specific town plan.
7. The land owner.
8. Reference to earlier relevant town plans.
9. Date when the plan went into effect legally.
