The current population of Bangkok, Thailand, of over 6.5 million places this city among the largest in the Developing World. Recent economic expansion has been rapid, bringing with it pressures on urban land use and a concurrent rapid rise in market land prices which outstrip income and productivity growth. Urban land readjustment has been considered to provide a potentially significant solution to the availability of urban land in Bangkok and the provincial cities of Thailand. A land information system (LIS) has been employed in the context of land readjustment in the urban and suburban environments of Bangkok. The LIS has involved field surveying , photogrammetry and geographical information system packages (ARC/INFO/TIN/AML), the output being a spatial and aspatial database and maps in a variety of forms. Previously an information system has not been used for urban land readjustment. Also cadastral maps, which are regarded as a rudimentary requirement for city planners, are currently produced by slow and labour intensive field survey methods. Consequently an alternative scheme involving up-to-date large scale aerial photographs has been developed, with the help of ground control by a global positioning system (Trimble 4000ST GPS), an analytical stereoplotter (AP190), and an independent model block adjustment program (BLOKK). It is evident that this photogrammetric approach requires less effort than conventional field survey methods. An additional result is a model for urban land readjustment (MULAR) which has been developed for editing and analysing data.
