Statement
Since 2017 maintenance in ArcGIS has been supplanted by 'ForesterWeb' cloud based mapping solution. Prior to 2017 estates data was maintained via the Deed Management System within ArcGIS. What is the Deed Management System? Estates, Forest Planning, Mapping & GeoData and ESRI (UK) Ltd have developed the Deed Management Extension. It has been designed to: 1. enable the Mapping & GeoData to interrogate and maintain the Forestry Commission's land holdings records 2. provide land ownership data to Estates staff with GIS 3. produce update polygons to maintain legal boundary information in the Forest District's 'Forester' GIS system The Deed Management System application is packaged as an ArcView 8 extension. It links ArcView 8 GIS and ORACLE (a relational database management system, or RDMS). Spatial information (polygons covering acquisitions and disposals of land areas, FC accesses, FC servitudes, legal boundaries) and deeds database information (attributes) are all managed within ArcView 8. The use of ArcSDE software sitting on a server in each territorial MGIU location further enhances the system by storing both the spatial data and the deeds attribute data in the same Oracle file, which also allows multi-user access to the data. The use of SDE also means backup arrangements are easier, since both the spatial and attribute data are backed up at the same time. Maintenance Functions in the Deed Management Extension: 1. Deed Identification 2. New Deed Creation 3. Editing of Existing Deeds 4. Deletion of Deeds 5. Creation of Information Points 6. Analysis of Deeds Data 7. Forest District A and D Layer Creation 8. Ownership Layer Creation (current land holdings) 9. Legal Boundary Layer Creation Create Legal Boundaries Generates a layer showing our current legal boundaries, by Forest District. This file does not have the internal deed boundaries shown and does not have deed attributes attached, just cost centre codes and names for the districts. This file will be used widely throughout the FC, in various GIS projects where a picture of our land holdings is required.
