Land Mapping and Property Land Terriers

Land mapping or property terrier map


Land Mapping or Property Land Terriers are private digital maps of your land or property assets held in a GIS (Geographic Information System). This enables you to store any specific information you may require such as land ownership, date of acquisition or environmental information in a database.

By integrating data from many sources, the land mapping GIS helps you analyse your assets to inform your decision making. If you want to map specific information about your land and property assets, we can create a land terrier in a bespoke map for you.

Creating terrier land mapping for County Councils

We have created land terrier maps for a number of County Councils by scanning the paper maps and adding geo-references to the information. We identified the extents of the land parcels owned by the council. Then digitally referenced the information with current ordinance survey data (aligning coordinate to coordinate). We then added these details into the features, using a unique ID for each parcel of land, details of ownership and acquisition dates.

Creating Bespoke Property Maps

Using data supplied by you and in relation to Ordnance Survey maps, we create up to date property maps to capture, inform and analyse current relationships, patterns and trends. As part of the project briefing process, we will ask you to define the map’s purpose such as navigation, strategic decisions or analysis so that we can create your Bespoke Property Map to meet your ultimate requirements.

Habitat Maps

If you would like to create or update an evidential map to capture and illustrate the spatial distribution of a specific habitat and its evolution over time, we can help you.

With experience of working for environmental charities, consultants and estate owners, our GIS expert will plot the distribution and extent of habitats to pre-agreed specifications from environmental survey data provided by you. These can then be updated as habitats change and evolve over time.
