Land plot database
This project called for the creation of a geographical database and associated output templates for use in administration of a rural crofting estate in Drumbuie, Kyle, NW Scotland. The target use consisted of collecting and distributing rent, managing land tax, maintaining a record of occupied land, managing unoccupied land, delivering services to owners and tenants, and solving land related disputes.
I created a database schema including parcels, owners, tenants and tenancy entities. Local topographic data was obtained from the Ordnance Survey MasterMap series and symbolised appropriately. Some preprocessing was necessary to derive a close approximation to actual land parcels.
A conceptual, logical and physical model and documentation accompanied the database. The implementation used the ArcGIS suite (ArcMap, ArcCatalog) with the Related Tables function revealing linked objects.
