    Topic description:




    The process of land buying and selling land in Bangladesh is full of complexities. People have to depend on others and need to check many data to ensure the ownership of land. A solution to this problem can be an e-commerce platform based on Land Information System that automates, and integrates authorized land data with other locational data. People can find if anyone is buying or selling land, authorized land data, locational data like elevation, soil type etc. in the same platform. So no matter where the customer is, they always can find and compare the land of his need.
