Information System, Nigeria, Oluyole.


The need for digital cadastral information system of part of Oluyole Local Government area in Oyo State arose due to inadequate digital information about the area as to retrial information about the study area. This realization led to the involvement of GIS, to assist in the creation, documentation, and management of land titles. Data were acquired by scanning the hardcopy layout plan of the study area, geo referencing and digitizing. While non spatial data were obtained through social survey, visual perception and statutory bodies. ArcGIS10.2 software was used to perform the GIS operations of storing, processing, manipulating, analyzing, displaying the required information. The results of database queries were presented in form of digital maps (thematic maps) showing the existing allocation patterns of parcels in the study area, and database table showing detailed characteristics of such parcels, amongst others. It is recommended that the State Government to create a database for all landed properties in the state, embark on enlightenment program for parcel owners to understand the importance of digital cadastre so as to have accurate information of parcel owners amongst others.
