CARIS will provide the Province of Nova Scotia with CARIS Land Information Network (LIN) to modernize and streamline Nova Scotia’s real property system.
Nova Scotia’s selection of CARIS LIN was made after careful review of the functionality in the CARIS LIN system in comparison with those in four other Canadian jurisdictions.
Developed by CARIS in cooperation with the province of New Brunswick under the name PLANET, the system is considered by many to be one of the most advanced examples of a modern government services delivery model being used anywhere.
CARIS LIN is an integrated information services application for managing land ownership. It replaces the traditional names-based Nova Scotia system, which cannot meet the new legislative and functional requirements. Customizable, modular and optimizing the latest Internet technologies, it also uses advanced ORACLE databases to provide a central repository of textual land attribute data.
In January 2002, Nova Scotia signed an agreement with CARIS, to acquire LIN as the base for the new Nova Scotia land registration system. The new NovaScotia application will be called LIN-NS.
