Problems concerning the optimal use of land resources and improved land management are important all over the world.
Since automation has greatly increased the ability to handle masses of data the challenge is to develop a good and comprehensive computerised Land Information System (LIS).
Information related specified land units is the cornerstone of LIS, since data concerning ownership and other property rights, boundaries, areas, land uses, market and assessed values, building, habitations, etc. are all interrelated.
Yl@tis-LIS is devoted to the problem of developing efficient information systems based on such land units and have proven knowledge of establishing LIS mainly based on experiences gained from integrating existing Cadastres, Land Register and Valuation Systems.
No countries are alike. Yl@tis-LIS should be understood as a framework of detail knowledge of the interrelations between areas related information. Our international experience has toughs us that traditional package solution seldom work since each country has its own infrastructure and administrative procedures.
The Yl@tis-LIS design has been developed in a modular fashion for LIS applications, and it has proven through the development of an integrated LIS for the Cyprus Government that Yl@tis-LIS can form a natural basis for comprehensive, multipurpose land information systems of great importance for improved planning management and control.
Furthermore, this modularity allows for a phased implementation plan, installing the individual modules only when legislation, organisation and work procedures are in place.
Yl@tis-LIS can be implemented by Yl@tisor by a locally selected software house backed by Yl@tis. In addition to the implementation of the system Yl@tis offers a number of consultancy services that can support the transition in the technical and administrative areas.
The Cyprus Land Information is a user-defined implementation of the Yl@tis LIS designed to fit Cyprus administration procedures and legislation. The system is at present running and can be demonstrated as the only computerised land Information System operating all basic interrelations on land units in one integrated system.
