Description

The goal of the project is to replace all existing paper survey indexes and registers with a single point access system, to allow for the tracking of plans from the date of deposit through to registration and to provide for a link for online access to the plans of survey. The province has a complicated land holding system. The province is broken into Townships Parishes Settlements and Indian Reserves, each having numerous sub groups. There are six regional land titles offices each with their own plan numbering systems. Through the computerization of the indexes the Property Registry has been able to standardize the indexes and provide a cross references to public and private clients that was only available through an exhaustive search of the paper records in the Winnipeg Office.

The data base is created using screens that were developed in Micro Soft Access. Flat files are then transferred to a DB2 data base that can then be viewed through the web server.
