Land information system in a sample ward of Kumbakonam town using GIS for decision making
LIS (Land Information System) implies that the spatially referenced land data stored in the database should be related to its ground location. In the Indian context of information system for sustainable development, the obvious choice of geographical location is the land parcel available in cadastral records. It is both easily locatable on a map and described in legal records. Such a land information system generated from the cadastral surveys will provide the information base for village level or micro level planning. The LIS will comprise of graphic elements derived from cadastral maps and non-graphic attribute data obtained from cadastral records suitably supplemented with additional information useful for planning purposes. In India, rapid urbanization is resulted due to the unprecedented population growth coupled with unplanned developmental activities. In this study, an integrated remote sensing and GIS based methodology is developed and successfully tested by generating an up to date digital database. In the present study a sample ward in Kumbakonam town has been taken with two objects of the study: To design a LIS with the details of the administrative infrastructure and attach the data base using ArcGIS module, secondly to convert the layout into different GIS layers and attach the secondary information such collected that will be used for decision making purpose. In this study ArcGIS 9.2 platform has been used to link the map and data base.
