LAND RECORDS THAT INCLUDE BOTH THE NATURE AND EXTENT OF LAND INTERESTS
Track: Cadastral and Land Records
Authors: Earl Epstein
GIS/LIS technologies and processes that collect, manage, and disseminate data about the location of land features have matured. Location-based products and services of these systems are widely known and used. GIS/LIS can be extended and deployed to accommodate the nature as well as location and extent of land features, aspects such as the rights, restrictions, and responsibilities (property rights) associated with land features. An American Land Records System (ALRS) designed to accomplish this extension and deployment is described.
