[OSGeo Africa] Open Source Software

Hi Leon

You can install PostgreSQL with PostGIS on your local server and add the tables necessary for your property register, you can then set up constraints, create user roles/logins, etc.

You can connect to your postgresql database using pgadmin or QGIS to edit your table(s) and also create spatial data.

This works great for us and multiple users can edit the same table/dataset concurrently. Our postgresql database is installed on our local server (LAN) and is not exposed to the web.

Hope this helps

Good Morning

Can anyone perhaps assist and guide me in the right direction. I am looking for open source software that is used as a property register in the South African context. It can  be a desktop program or server program with more than one user. It will be a definite plus if the software can be used and linked with GIS.
