The Lands Department is one of the most frustrating government departments-anyone who has visited the department will say so. But the government is seeking to change that with an upgraded Land Folio system, a land management system used to manage natural resources. It is a parcel-based system used by officers to quantify each parcel and put the relevant attributes associated with those parcels in the system. The system was launched in 2014 with the two-point-seven version. But this week, more than 170 officers began learning how to use the seven-point one-version. Facilitating the training is Trimble, a California-based software, hardware, and services technology company. Software Engineer Leon Thornton Junior shares more.
Information Technology Manager at the ministry, Michael Link, and the ministry’s CEO Nelda Tulcey, explained that with this training, the staff will be able to navigate through the Land Folio system version seven point one to become more efficient.
