Managing resources effectively and efficiently is very important in running or executing any business or task. Poor resource management can inhibit a job with respect to cost, time and profit. Using GIS, L & S has developed a cadastral inventory system to aid in proper data and resource management for private cadastral jobs. This system has proven most vital for the retrieval of soft and hardcopy files. Also the system provides an overall spatial outlook of the relationships between jobs completed. This approach has proven to be successful and the system is constantly being updated with complete jobs.
