Housing managers, estate agents, and property landlords are all benefitting from power of location that Cadcorp SIS® brings to their work.
The management of land and property lends itself very easily to the application of GIS technology. Land parcels and buildings usually have addresses. If you have an address it is a simple matter to map the address to a location on the ground.A map has the power to communicate the big picture in a way that a spread sheet can never do. Lines on a map define boundaries in an unambiguous way – boundaries of ownership, of land cover, and of land use. Digital maps make the task of measurement easy. Housing associations have discovered there are savings to be made when ground maintenance contracts boundaries are negotiated based on accurate estimates of areas to be maintained.
