Data Visualization of GIS Data for Managing Land Access (#2)

Access to private or leased land is currently not a simple problem. Landowners would like to know who is on their land, when, and for what purpose. Getting permissions from landowners to use their land is often not straight forward; often leading to bypassing obtaining permission. Some landowners do not want hunters, but do not mind artists or photographers accessing their land. To simplify this process, VeriGrain is building the SaskLander Platform that provides an easy-to-use interface for managing interactions between landowners and those seeking permission to access their land. Saskatchewan Polytechnic will be working with VeriGrain to provide a scalable visualization of GIS data that offers high level detail that can be drilled down to every piece of land across multiple provinces. Land-users will be able to locate land they wish to access and request permission from landowners to have access to the land. Landowners will be able to manage land use requests automatically or at an individual request level.
