Map Based Housing Capstone Project Review of Related Literature
REVIEW OF RELATED LITERATURE AND PRIOR ARTS SEARCH
This chapter provides information in review of related literatures, system, studies and research on the use of technology in storing information, tracking location of the individual housing and providing data with the use mapping and Geographic information system (GIS).
Housing Development Workflow Management System
The Housing Development Workflow Management System (HDWMS) is a system developed to assist Developers to manage large housing development projects. It has been successfully used to manage the Vulindlela Housing Project in the Msunduzi Municipality which is one of the largest low-cost housing projects in South Africa comprising 25,000 houses. Housing Development Workflow Management System
Consist of three primary interfaces: a SharePoint view, a K2 Black pearl view and a GIS view. The Vulindlela Housing Project System is also a Geographical Information Systems (GIS) web based system that allows users to track the status of housing sites and generate reports that show detailed information per site as well as summary reports per ward. The system allows users to view and interact with the GIS map of the housing development area, turn map layers on and off, locate a specific site and view attribute information attached to that site (www.mhpgeospace.co.za).
Orbit rolls out GIS mapping system for housing management
According to Steve Litchfield (2016), GIS manager at Orbit Group, said: “The business is now utilizing a much more efficient GIS platform, which supports our digital by default agenda and provides staff with the tools they need to deal with customer queries faster and more effectively, in turn improving our overall customer satisfaction levels. I was the go-to person when staff required specific geographic information, maps and analysis, but this was unsustainable as the business grew. Together with Cadcorp we have evolved the system to ensure it meets the needs of the business and enables staff to self-serve. The feedback and usage from staff has been excellent.

Web GIS for Housing Management – assetvu
The system Web GIS for Housing Management providing improved visualization and analysis of Housing Association assets. Provided as a hosted and supported online solution, Housing Association staff can get access to a host of property –related data through an intuitive map interface. Assetvu has been deliberately designed as a light GIS viewer and is based on our experience of providing hosted mapping solutions to the Local Authority market in planvu. (www.lovelljohns.com).
DESIGNING A COMMUNITY BASED EARLY WARNING AND MAPPING SYSTEM FOR AN URBAN BARANGAY
The system mainly focuses on the dissemination and timeliness of arrival of the information to the people. The system also includes consolidating disaster histories of each barangay to provide more accurate reports to help the officials in their preparation for future disasters. The system is a community-based early warning system, designed to effectively inform the community of Leveriza and those who are registered to the system about upcoming or on-going disasters. The system will improve the way of communication of the Barangay Officials to each other and its residents, and standardize the methods of each barangay in terms of informing their people about certain events (e.g. Trainings/Drill schedules, and disaster related reports).. The users of the system are the following; Zone Chairman, Barangay Officials, There a Volunteers, and Other Subscriber. These non-structural approaches include early warning, hazard mapping, locating evacuation centers, information dissemination through web and mobile SMS. Community-based (or Crowd sourced) mitigation approaches will also be included such as identifying risk reduction measures that are community specific through the participation individuals from the community themselves.

Municipal utility mapping system and method
The computer system and method provides a community map of a plurality of types of utility resources. Software displays a graphic map with visual references to a plurality of types of utility resources. The software also includes instructions that associate data relating to instances of the utility resources and display the data on the display. The method of creating a community map of a plurality of types of utility resources involves associating a plurality of maps of utility resources into a single graphic representation, associating related data with each utility resource; and providing a link between positions on the graphic representation and the associated data that enables display of the associated data when a position on the graphic representation corresponding to a utility resource is activated.

Communication Resource Mapping for Coastal Resources Management of Barangay Malabrigo, Lobo, Batangas, Philippines
A communication resource map shows the spatial distribution of communication needs and facilities relative to other natural and biophysical resources such as river, roads, school, barangay or village hall and other structures. It makes use of symbols to represent the various resources of the community. This makes communication planning more strategic because the map provides information on what resources exist and where. Unlike resource mapping, communication resource mapping has not yet been widely adopted as a PRA tool. While it was initially carried out in a protected area management planning project in Mindoro as part of the socio-economic data by the Department of Environment and Natural Resources in the 1990s, communication resource mapping was not scaled up in succeeding projects.

Barangay Decision Support and Mapping System
The system is designed to allow the storage and retrieval of the record of all the residents in the barangay; allow the user to create and edit the barangay map using the generally-accepted symbols or icons which represents the natural and man-made features within the barangay; automate the processing of barangay clearances, permits and similar documents issued by the barangay; allow the storage and retrieval of barangay-approved ordinances, resolutions and other necessary reports; record environmental problems in the barangay and the solutions provided; record and retrieve cases of domestic violence, child abuse and barangay hazards and the actions taken by the concerned officials; and provide the necessary reports including existing businesses, demography, residents by household, population structure, children’s nourishment, literacy distribution, domestic violence, household composition, households by dwelling, employment distribution, barangay hazards, barangay residents, minutes of meetings, barangay ordinances, barangay resolutions, and barangay topography.

Based on the research, the researcher learned that the use of technology will make great improvement in their business and organization. According to Steve Litchfield, GIS manager at Orbit Group, said: “The business is now utilizing a much more efficient GIS platform, which supports our digital by default agenda and provides staff with the tools they need to deal with customer queries faster and more effectively, in turn improving our overall customer satisfaction levels.” The Housing Development Workflow Management System is a system that developed to assist Developers to manage large housing development projects. The Housing Project System is also use
Geographical Information Systems (GIS) web based system that allows users to track the status of housing sites, view, interact with the GIS map of the housing development area, locate a specific site and generate reports that show detailed information per site as well as summary reports per ward. And the Web GIS for Housing Management – assetvu are provided as a hosted and supported online solution, Housing Association staff can get access to a host of property –related data through an intuitive map interface. And there are many information management system that system is designed to allow the storage and retrieval of the record and they using map to guidelines of their transaction. And also the map provides a plurality of types of utility resources also include instruction that associate data relating to instances of the utility resources. The different between the existing system and the City Information Management and Mapping System of Housing Project is that the system can determine the duplicating name of the owner of the house, and the system can reports through converted file PDF and Excel and can be printed to create a hard copy for the monthly and yearly report. And the housing project system are using mapping system that the user can track the location of the individual house. And it is clickable and if the user click the house, they pop up a modal and the user can see the information details about the owner of the house, the user can see their picture and description and etc. And this system is offline, the advantage of the offline system is you can access the system without internet, unlike the online system, you cannot access the system without internet.
