Land & Property
Most applications of GIS involve land - indirectly. However for some organisations, GIS is all about land management.
Cadcorp SIS is used by housing associations, property developers, land agents, facilities managers, landlords, estate agents, letting agencies, farm and estates managers, surveyors and valuers.
Applications of Cadcorp SIS in land and property include:
|Portfolio management||Tenancy management|
|Land surveys||Building surveys|
|Repair and maintenance||Statutory compliance|
|Managing wayleaves and easements||Site selection|
Cadcorp and social housing
Housing associations throughout the UK are using the Cadcorp Spatial Information System in all phases of housing management and maintenance.
Building up records
Those that are new to GIS and mapping find that the powerful data capture and editing capabilities of Cadcorp SIS are invaluable for helping them create and maintain map records of their land and property assets.
Asset managers are discovering the advantages of recording properties not simply as addresses or points on a map, but as well-defined features. Many housing associations have realised that their ability to negotiate with grounds maintenance contractors is considerably strengthened when they have used GIS to provide accurate measurements of the spatial extent of areas to be maintained.
Sharing the big picture
Housing associations that have already captured their asset base are now using the power of shared location to help them operate in a joined up manner. They are using the ability of Cadcorp SIS to integrate disparate data sets, present the big picture, and to share that picture more widely through web mapping.
Hosted web mapping
Many housing associations could be missing out on the benefits of using geographic information simply because they are unable to justify employing a dedicated mapping expert. Recognising this, Cadcorp has designed a proposition specifically for housing associations that manage less than 10,000 properties.
