Tanzania: A New land surveying and mapping system is in pipeline and will significantly bring down the costs of carrying out the exercise, the Minister for Lands, Housing and Human Settlement Development, Prof Anna Tibaijuka, said.
The new system would soon be out and go in tandem with use of satellite technology and reduce land surveying costs. “Once the costs go down, land surveyors in various government departments and private sector will increase the rate at which land is surveyed,” she said.
According to the Minister, the new system, which would go in line with international standards, would include city and town plans, residential area plans and villages, infrastructure, national reserves and mines among others.
