An Improved Land Mapping and Geographical Information Management System Using Geodatabase (Published)

With data constantly increasing at a tremendous speed, it is crucial to have better knowledge of how information is manipulated and stored for subsequent retrieval and use. The data storage geodatabase strategy is introduced as dependable alternative based on acknowledged relational database concepts, which form foundation of selected database handling system. Simple but well-defined tables composed of distinctive features selected to store and handle spatial data and rule-base for every topographical dataset. In this paper, we developed an improved land mapping and Geographical Information System (GIS) using geodatabase. The study provides an enhanced approach to storing and managing data using a geodatabase, contributing to further research into alternative way of handling big data. Development of a web application that interacts with geodatabase for big data storage without the need of running multiple servers or enterprise class software. Thus this research is useful for those who have need for efficient data storage and management in today’s world of data size and complexities. By storing data within a geodatabase, one can draw from the benefits that come with its data management capabilities to leverage spatial information.
