THE MINNESOTA INFORMATION SYSTEM AND LAND USE MAP

THE MINNESOTA LAND MANAGEMENT INFORMATION SYSTEM STUDY (MLMIS) AIMS AT ESTABLISHING A STATEWIDE DATA BASE FOR LAND RELATED INFORMATION, BY WHICH THE SYSTEM WILL PROVIDE INFORMATION TO OFFICIALS AND PLANNERS IN DECISION-MAKING AND POLICY FORMULATION ON LAND RESOURCES. BY BUILDING AN AUTOMATIC GEO-CODING AND TRANSFERRING SYSTEM, THE MLMIS ATTEMPTS TO SYSTEMATIZE A BROAD RANGE OF DATA NOW COLLECTED ROUTINELY AND MAINTAINED SEPARATELY BY VARIOUS GOVERNMENT AGENCIES. THE MAJOR SOURCES OF DATA ARE THE UNIVERSITY OF MINNESOTA, FEDERAL, STATE, AND COUNTY GOVERNMENTS. THE TYPES OF DATA INCLUDE LAND USE, LAND OWNERSHIP, LAND VALUE, LAND CHARACTERISTICS, AND GOVERNMENT LAND USE CONTROLS. COMPUTER MAPPING AND ANALYSIS ARE INTEGRAL PARTS OF MLMIS, BY WHICH DATA ARE DISPLAYED. IN THE LONG RUN, THE GOALS OF THE MLMIS ARE TO ELIMINATE DATA DUPLICATION, TO REDUCE THE COST OF DATA COLLECTION, AND HOPEFULLY THE SYSTEM CAN SERVE AS AN IMPORTANT TOOL IN THE PROCESS OF LAND USE DECISION-MAKING. /ACSM/
