PROJECTS AND ACTIVITIES
• Lagos State Digital Mapping, Geographic Information System (LAGIS) and Geodetic Control Harmonization Projects: LAGIS is a digital mapping project that involved aerial photography (7cm-Ground Sample Distance), LiDAR Survey (accurate to 10cm), digital mapping at 1:500 scale, geodatabase creation and an enterprise GIS development. I carried out geodetic survey missions (by GPS and levelling) & least squares adjustments, headed the team & coordinated preparation of the cadastral layer and partook in aerial survey missions. I also partook in feature extraction & geo-database creation and administered the Enterprise GIS.
• Office of Surveyor General of the Federation – Enterprise GIS: The project involves data conversion of mapping data into geo-database as well as establishment of an enterprise Geographic Information System.
I prepared the required Data Model, Conceptual, Logical and Physical Design. Conducted Database Installation, Data ETL, Server GIS application configuration, Enterprise platform setup and Training
Illegal Extension of Properties / Land Encroachment Project: Direct responsibilities include: Training personnel on process of encroachment determination using legal survey & physical planning standards & specifications, training on AutoCAD Civil3D and ArcGIS tools; – Creation of scripts for demand notice generation and land charges determination; – Web GIS application and geo-database design for recording and presenting work progress; – Project reporting and client liaison. – Conduct of Environmental / Flood Modelling to exclude properties in flood plains from regularization
