Investments in advanced technologies and building multiple information systems can leverage interoperability and integration to improve analytical processes informing policy and development. Rwanda has developed several systems to implement different obligations for citizen-centred oriented services. The comprehensive Land Administration Information System, Building Permit Management Information System, interactive physical planning and spatial information web applications to access physical development policies and guidelines are examples of systems that can be integrated to develop a land use monitoring system. The interaction of these systems and building foot print data using selected areas in Kigali and Musanze will demonstrate the importance of developing a digital land use monitoring system to conform to policy guidelines and development control. Regulated data structures, provided for in a national ICT policy and strategy, ensure that such innovations are cost effective and avoid replications and redundancies, where each system maintains its unique core function and information source of truth.
