The Ministry of Natural Resources and the Environment of Belize, in collaboration with Inter-American Development Bank, awarded the landfolio team a contract for the Development and Implementation of a Land Information System.
The Land Information System Project is part of the National Land Management Program (LMP), co-funded by the Inter-American Development Bank and the Government of Belize. The goal of the LMP is to develop a national land policy framework focusing on both private and public sector development through secure land tenure.
The landfolio team implemented its proprietary land information management solution, landfolio®. landfolio solution automated and integrated the public land records and cadastral maps under a single software platform that is providing the government of Belize with an advanced property management toolkit to oversee and administer their property records.
Trimble's landfolio team developed an easy-to-use GIS-based application to analyze city services (e.g. garbage collection, utilities). An ArcIMS application was created to be used by various departments within the municipality for the purpose of monitoring services provided by the municipality by location. This system is also used as a fee tracking tool- that is, the location where taxes/fees are paid by the user, in comparison with those locations where the services are provided, but no fees are being paid. Additionally, the system will be used to analyze the assessment of tax values to better establish an equitable valuation system. The GIS database was integrated by the landfolio team with the existing Oracle taxation database.
