The Survey Department of Sri Lanka (SDSL) completed a recent upgrade to their ‘Online’ Land Information System (LIS) which was implemented using ArcGIS as the Software Platform. 
ArcGIS is the world leading software in geographical information systems (GIS) is distributed in Sri Lanka by GIS Solutions (Pvt) Ltd, a subsidiary of Just In Time Group. 
SDSL is the authority for the LIS, which has now given the public online access through this active system. SDSL continues to be in the forefront of all developing GIS projects in Sri Lanka as they are the National Surveying & Mapping Organization in Sri Lanka.
The LIS platform will provide the general public of Sri Lanka easy access to details of their, property related information online. This is an important source of information to the public, which now provides users 24/7 access with accuracy. Individual land parcels of the published area can be interactively visualized with the required attributes. 
Information of the land areas and availability of field surveyed data will be published online and the system updates for new surveys will also be completed in due course. As an example, the Divisional Secretary Area Land information can be viewed through the LIS online through the option categorized as ‘Land parcel information’ on the SDSL corporate website, http://www.lis.survey.gov.lk/lismap/.
LIS is a “Tool for legal, administrative and economic decision making support and an aid for planning and development, which has been sourced with the field surveyed data under the Land Title Registration Project, which currently goes as “Bimsaviya”. The Digital Geo-spatial data collected for preparation of Cadastral Maps are processed to create a parcel based LIS, attributed with Tenement Information, which is then collected for the requirements and issuing of land title certificates by the Registrar General’s Department.
SDSL is a user of ArcGIS Technology which is distributed in Sri Lanka by GIS Solutions (Pvt) Ltd., since 1990’s appointed by the global GIS Technology leader ESRI (Environmental Systems Research Institute, USA). The Deputy Survey General and Head of LIS, Shyamali Perera states, “the introduction of this e-service to the public is in keeping in line with the Sri Lanka Survey Department’s organizational mission of providing the public with high quality land information products and services through professionally qualified and dedicated personnel”. 
The Surveyor General, P.M.P Udayakantha, similarly stated that “LIS at the SDSL has endorsed the e-services of the government and working towards taking the next step to create further dynamic links with the identified stakeholders to provide additional ‘People Friendly Services’ from the SDSL.”
ESRI (Environmental Systems Research Institute)  based in Redlands, California, USA is the developer of ArcGIS  -ESRI- inspires and enables people to positively impact the future through a deeper, geographic understanding of the changing world around them
GIS Solutions (Pvt) Ltd is a subsidiary of Just In Time Group and is the sole authorized distributor in Sri Lanka, to market the ArcGIS range of GIS Technology products.  Appointed by the global GIS Technology leader ESRI (Environmental Systems Research Institute - USA).
