Design and implementation of a geographic information system



Abstract This research paper examined the inadequacies involved in the manual method Geographic Information Systems in Nigeria, specifically Delta State Polytechnic, Ogwashi-Uku. To achieve that, preliminary investigations about the current manual record keeping were carried out at the Polytechnic. The problems with the manual system of recordkeeping were identified and a new system was proposed, designed, and implemented. In this work, a computer software application was developed to facilitate the automated processing of the results. The software was developed using PHP (Hypertext processor) programming language and MYSQL (My Structural Query Language), a relational database management system in designing the database tested and found to have produced the expected results. The main objective of this development is to collect the field data in a timely, handy and cost-effective manner. In describing a Geographic Information System first an understanding of what geography is, is of paramount importance because without it one cannot get a proper view of what an information system is and what it has to offer..
