|Title||Development of a GIS-based Land Registry System for Gaza Strip|
Land is the most crucial item and the core of the Palestinian-Israeli conflict. Palestinian people need their land to set up their independent state. Israeli Occupation Forces (IOF) are depriving the Palestinians from their right to access their own lands, in addition to the continuous land confiscating policy in the whole occupied territories and the Access Isolated Area in the Gaza Strip. Gaza Strip suffers from the lack of advanced techniques that help and support land registration using GIS technology. The currently-used-system for land registration in the Gaza Strip is extremely traditional and not able to meet the increasing demand. Conflicts between data on maps and on ground are frequently faced and decisions relating to these problems cannot easily be made. Such an out of date system leads to difficulties in tracking and updating land owners and identifying the actual current owners. This research aims at proposing a new automatic land registration system in the Gaza Strip. Through a multi users unified database with identified access per each user; this new methodology will ease land registration on both Gaza citizens and the Palestinian Land Authority’s (PLA) employees. So, direct and indirect data were collected through reviewing relevant literatures and conducting several interviews with key informants from PLA, free lancers, specialists, and clients. Due to the contextual analysis; the gap in land registration system was assessed and the required corrective strategies were participatory identified with PLA’s relevant staff. Using Geographic Information System (GIS); attribute and spatial data were connected. A user friendly web based GIS tool was developed to accelerate the land registration process, in addition to providing a decision support system through easily managing and interpreting attribute and spatial data in a precise logical way. The aforementioned new developed tools will create and maintain an accurate, secure and comprehensive land registration system in the Gaza Strip.
