  GIS Solutions Ltd, a subsidiary of Just In Time Group, recently conducted a program on ‘Parcel Fabric’ for the Land Information Division of the Sri Lanka Survey department (SLSD), which took place on 24 March, at the SLSD Auditorium. Among the participants present were the Deputy Surveyor General, Superintendent of Surveys, Government Surveyors and Draughtsman. GIS Solutions Ltd GIS Consultant Thillai Nadarajan presented the functionality of ‘Parcel Fabric’ by demonstrating the fundamental facilities which creates and maintains the Land Information System (LIS) in the Enterprise Geo-database space (of the ArcGIS Platform) and benefits such as the multiuser editing capability function and storage of information on any Relational Database Management System (RDBMS) such as; Oracle, SQL server, Informix, IBM DB2 or Postgre SQL, etc. The Parcel Fabric tool is especially valuable to the SLSD as they are in the migration process to manage the existing and projected data to be surveyed to cover the entire country. SLSD’s commitment to develop their department members’ professional skills through utilising technology has been a key factor to their advancement in the field of GIS in Sri Lanka.
