8.1.1 Overview

To facilitate and standardize the GIS procedures for land use planning, the software package of '
LUPMIS Tools' has been developed. This is not part of the standard Map Maker setup, but customized for land use plannig in Ghana. There are 8 'Tool Sets'

Note: Technically, these are programs in PHP, using MMmacro and GIS file import/ export features of Map Maker (loc, xy, mme, ptp, geo files, see also Annex 18.5) and SQL processing. PHP was chosen for highest compliance with web-based browsing facilities.
