Hi Jackburton,

Thanks for your "First attempt" but they are NOT what I'm looking
The first 2 programs has been rejected because they are using US maps
only whereas we are looking for a non-US maps implementation, also we
are only interested to upload the maps of a certain project and NOT a
full real estate office operation (Which requires a state/country
maps). Let me describe what we're looking for:
1. Customer with an agent in front of a computer, after he starts the
program he finds a graphical (map) view of the project (Plots,
commercial bldgs, etc).
2. Each plot (land) in the project are numbered and preferebly colored
3. If any plot (Land) is of interest to the customer, the agent would
click on it, the pop-up window will show the plot's info (Size, price,
rent, sold or not, etc.)
4. If the customer is interested the agent would either sell it and a
"SOLD" click would be selected and the color of the plot will be
5. Or the agent will click the reserve button and the plot will show
reserved (in different color) in the main view screen.

Now, the above is the major features we're looking into the system,
any additional featrue is a plus..

I hope I made my self clear....

Hi walfarhan-ga,

Thanks for your wonderful question! I had fun researching this topic
and came up with the following Land Parcel Management software
applications :


SDS, Inc. -- Parcel Mapper software for Property Data Management

"Parcel Mapper is a software tool that lets mapping personnel
streamline their parcel maintenance workflow -- regardless of whether
they are moving from the traditional paper-based method or from a
system that is already GIS-based. Parcel Mapper focuses the strengths
of ESRI's ArcInfo, the world's leading GIS software, on the task of
parcel mapping and maintenance. Parcel Mapper provides access to the
features of ArcInfo that are useful to parcel mapping personnel, while
simplifying the user interface to these commands and providing access
to them in a structured, workflow-oriented fashion."

"Use simple tools to visually navigate the map, providing appropriate
detail for varying zoom levels. Easily locate parcels through various
means - graphical selection, parcel attribute query, etc. Uniquely
identify each parcel, and provide annotation to various map features."


NovaLIS Technologies : Solutions : Assessment Office

"NovaLIS' Assessment Office fully automates property appraisal and
administration practices. It combines the proven capabilities of
Computer Assisted Mass Appraisal (CAMA), assessment administration
systems, Geographic Information Systems (GIS), document imaging, and
workflow management technology into a complete business solution for
the management and valuation of real and personal property. Assessment
Office supports a variety of valuation models, including:
income-based, component cost, market, and other user defined
approaches to valuation."

"View, query, analyze, and manipulate data within a spatial
environment. Value land, residential, commercial/industrial, mobile
homes, miscellaneous, and personal property."

"AO integrates with ESRI's ArcGIS software, as well as continuing
support for ArcView and MapObjects."


CEDRA AVparcel 2003 worldwide

"CEDRA AVparcelTM is an ArcView® and ArcGIS®extension which includes
and expands upon CEDRA AVcadTM to provide tax (cadastral) mapping,
parcel maintenance and general Polygon Editing."

"In addition to the mapping tools, CEDRA AVparcelTM provides
functionality for editing attribute data using customized dialog
boxes. The CEDRA-DataEditorTM extension, which is included with CEDRA
AVparcel, enables the user to identify the specific themes and
attributes which the user can edit. Quality control and data
verification tools are included with the CEDRA-DataEditor extension to
ensure that the database is properly maintained. The customized dialog
boxes, which the user defines, are established without having the user
write any Avenue, Visual Basic or other programming language software.
With a simple point and click, CEDRA DataEditor users are able to edit
and maintain their tabular information without having to start and
stop table editing sessions."

Since this application is customizable and gives you the ability to
create databases that represent parcel ownership, school districts,
etc., you should be able to easily create a "sold/available"
designation too.


TGS : Products : ParcelFinder

"ParcelFinder is a robust, scalable, enterprise document management
application with an easy-to-use graphical GIS front-end that can
access, organize, and display information relating to parcels,
easements, rights-of-ways.  ParcelFinder can be customized to meet
your company's or agency's individual requirements pertaining to
linking documents with assets."


This one needs an optional module for maps :

NaviLine Land-Parcel Management

"HTE Land/Parcel Management is a centralized database of address and
parcel information. All HTE land-based software applications access
property information contained in Land/Parcel Management's location
records. Sharing this data eliminates the need to store duplicate
information in individual applications, ensuring higher levels of
accuracy and consistency."
