The Korea Land Information System (KLIS) aims to provide information necessary for land policy establishment promptly and accurately. This system manages accurate information on land use zoning designated by land use regulations and provides it to government agencies, local governments, and people. KLIS manages and provides specifically the land information database to prevent duplication of investment among agencies and to effectively manage the land by securing the compatibility of data sets.
There were many difficulties during the construction process of KLIS. The first of these difficulties was to produce a serial cadastral map with single cadastral maps, because of different scales of cadastral map in the characteristics of land parcels. Secondly, there was a discrepancy in each different zoning map. Thirdly, the flawed legal system for data sharing in land policies and lastly, the central government experienced conflicts to initiate the KLIS incorporation. In spite of these challenges, the Korean government was able to establish the KLIS.
The KLIS performed better than anticipated and its effects were both tangible and intangible. Enhanced public services through the Internet have been welcomed by the public, and are helping to save time and costs.
