UN-HABITAT prepared this manual as one of the project activities under the urban management component of the Support to Priority Areas in the Urban Sector (SPAUS) programme and the Urban Development Programme for the Somali region (SUDP). The Systematic Land Information and Management (SLIM) manual is in line with a methodology that UN-HABITAT developed for the establishment and implementation of Geographic Information Systems (GIS) in municipalities. UN-HABITAT GIS activities in the Somali region have focused on the use of quick and cost-effective methods for acquiring and processing geographic information and making it available to different users in the urban land sector. GIS and remote sensing techniques have been combined with field survey methods to realize the rapid provision of urban land information that is already being used for various land management purposes, e.g. urban planning and design, and property taxation.
