Land Planning Geographical Information System by R-Systems - LPGIS -
is a WEB environment, where land owners, planners and officials can insert and change local land plans in the form of spatial data. So LPGIS is a "common language" between them.
With LPGIS, hard copy maps and special software for reading different digital formats are no longer necessary.


A structured system of spatial objects with different shapes and presentation rules covers all the elements used in land planning.
In the Data Dictionary land planning elements and relationships between them are defined. Users can browse it both by object names and attributes.
In the Presentation Library presentation of each planning element is described in detail.
The GIS database, accessible by Web application, binds the Data Dictionary and the Presentation Library.
Users enter the Web application URL in compliance with their rights, which allows either only observing the Land Plans or changing them as well. User rights can be set according to the location or in compliance with other rules.
No downloading is required as all the functionality and data are located on the server.  


Land plans, drawn by means of licensed software, can be imported into the system from the following formats:
  • Autocad – DWG
  • Microstation – DGN
  • Mapinfo – TAB
The System first converts the Plans into ESRI Shape files. Each shape file can be handled as a GIS layer in GIS and its objects can be recognized either automatically or manually. In case of automatic operation, a conversion template associating GIS elements with CAD layers must be present. In case of manual operation, the User can highlight object shapes on the map layer by layer and then choose a GIS presentation from the symbol list. The recognized layers set can be saved as a new conversion template. Raster Pictures, coordinated on the map, with various levels of transparency, can be added to the Land Plan. Photos of the objects can also be attached. By means of Web Editor, GIS objects can be added or changed within the system. Plot Building Rights can be attached to a Land Plan by importing them from a Plot Building Rights excel table and the data will be associated with each plot, which has been previously recognized . LPGIS database is supplied with a search engine. Search requests can be made both on attribute (i.e. building rights) and spatial data. Once a Land Plan is set in the system, it can be exported into the formats listed above.


LPGIS spatial data can be presented on Google Maps. However, if the User has some better base map data, R-Systems can create a WMS server on for it.

3) Manual recognition:

- first a shape from converted CAD file is chosen:

Manual recognition 1

- then presntation must be attatched from presentation list:

Manual recognition 2

- as a result, shape is recognized as the plan border:
