This report describes the procedures that have been established for the digital capture of mineral planning permission polygons and associated data on historic MHLG (Ministry of Housing and Local Government) maps and cards, so that they may be incorporated into an Oracle database and ArcGis system as part of the MODSS (Mineral Oriented Decision Support Systems) project. The preparation of documented procedures is an essential part of the project quality assurance scheme and will allow any member of the project team to adopt standardised working practices over the duration of the project. The documentation held in this report may also be utilised by other similar projects in the future.
