In the new era of globalization, the escalating economic activities are putting ever increasing pressure on acquisition of apposite land resources, creating competition and conflicts, in some cases resulting in unproductive or destructive use of land resources. Sustainable land management protrudes out of this situation as a solution to guarantee the protection of ecological processes or reducing biological diversity. GIS provides the toolsets and framework for organizing multi-disciplinary information at all scales of land information system. GIS also provides the collaborative framework for data collection and analysis in order to quantify any remedial actions. Web based GIS solutions helps user/customer to retrieve and submit spatial information any time anywhere in the world. Through the web, users can access GIS, view a smart intelligent active Vector map, and perform relevant queries without even having GIS software installed in the client’s machine. The web maps being published are comparable to the age old maps drawn on sand, in life i.e., short lived and overcomes many disadvantages of those sand maps to the many other more permanent and portable information carriers used. This paper examines one of the techniques that can be used to develop Internet-based GIS application with the aid of Autodesk Map Guide and embedded support of Java Server Pages (JSP) and other HTML publishing engines via Java interfaces accessible via scripting. It is concluded that the Internet based information dissemination helps to gain greater visibility into the assets so as to operate effectively in a more open market, by improving decision making processes. A web GIS development cycle has been proposed and tested through publishing Industrial layout site information.
