This project revolves around the construction of Geographic Information System for
Labuan Island. The area of interest is focused on the data available for Labuan Island
for be combined in a single software system. Software used in this project is ArcGIS
9.3 which includes ArcMap and ArcCatalog. Conventional map data available
nowadays are all spread out and in different format thus making data gathering for
decision making somewhat difficult. The map data can be lost or damaged as it is
usually kept in paper format. There are also difficulties of comparing information
covering the same geographic region, but on two different sources. Typically
mapping data collected fur, say, climate could not be compared directly with, say,
soil mapping because they are reproduced at different scales and projections. The
scope of study basically covers four main phases starting from the literature review,
data gathering, constructing ArcMap for Labuan Island and finally published the
completed data compilation for users. The methodology of this project shows how
the steps need to be taken in order to construct a geographic information system for
desired area. The end product consists of five layers of different data with aerial map
data taken from ArcGIS explorer as base map layer for Labuan Island GIS.
