Development of Land Acquisition Management Software


Tubed Coal Mines Limited (TCML) is a joint venture between Hindalco Industries Limited and the Tata Power Company Limited. TCML had a requirement to develop a Land Management and Development software for managing various land-related data. CyberSWIFT Infotech was awarded the project.

Objectives of the Project

Land acquisition management is an elaborate process. It requires efficient tracking of ownership details, lease data, mutation documents and a variety of other information. A land management software consolidates all records and activities within one platform. This makes it easy to track, manage and update land-related information. The purpose of this project was to deliver a customizable software for land management integrated with GIS and MIS facilities.

Geo-referencing and satellite image integration

Solutions Offered by CyberSWIFT

  • Purchase of high-resolution satellite images of the area of interest
  • Digitization and geo-referencing of available cadastral maps
  • Superimposition of the satellite imagery on the geo-referenced maps
  • Integration of RoR (Record of Rights) data into the geo-referenced maps. This data includes plot information, owner details etc.
  • Land use and land cover mapping and development of a change detection system to map the changes in the satellite images taken at different times
  • Development of a dynamic and user-friendly Land Management software for monitoring, tracking and managing land-related activities
  • Training of TCML staff (user and administrator) on the basic operation of the software, loading of geo-referenced images, cadastral maps, satellite images and total station data into software and change detection system
web based gis application

Basic Features of the Software

  • Web-based application with user authentication as per role
  • Digital representation of revenue survey/cadastral maps with plot number
  • Pictorial representation of land on top of satellite image
  • Land Use/Land Cover inventory at a glance
  • Stage-wise live viewing of land acquisition status on map with different color code
  • On the fly generation of Thematic Map (Color Coded Maps) as per the plot
  • Integration with plot information/RoR details
  • Land Records document management - records include various Government records like porches, deed etc. related to a particular plot
  • Keeping records of the Disputes / Encumbrances / Legal Matters / Litigation related to plot

Final Deliverable

We delivered a land management software complete with data entry of the land-related information of the project site. Additionally, we trained TCML staff on the basic operation of this software and provided them with a training manual for the same.
