Ndukwe E. Chiemelu, Vincent O. Onwumere


Land management could be enhanced through effective land administration, which involves the processes of land registration, Cadastre, valuation and land inventory. Manual Land Administration has been in use by the Ministry of Lands and Survey in Port Harcourt since its inception. The city and its surrounding have been expanding rapidly beyond projections. With this rapid expansion, manual Land Administration has become inefficient, time-consuming and prone to abuses, whereby some land officers siphon revenues generated, because of inefficient land transaction records; hence, a digital, scientific, and operational approach of Land Administration was adopted by development of an Integrated Land Information System. However, this has been achieved by conversion of existing land related information to digital formats with the aid of relevant software like MS Excel, MS Access, AutoCAD Land Development and ArcGIS 9.2 and the combination of necessary queries and analysis. The results show an efficient, effective and proper Land Administration and revenue generation procedure.

Key Words: Cadastre, Land Administration, LIS, ArcGIS, revenue generation.
