Abstract: GIS has become an indispensable tool for effective planning, communication, and training in the various stages for Real estate and housing management systems. The prime concern during any housing management system is the availability of the spatial information, and the dissemination of this information to all concerned bodies. Internet- GIS can play a key role in this aspect by providing cost-effective information at various stages for users of Real estate and Housing management system. In this work the available models and important tools for the development of Internet- GIS applications are investigated and the appropriate once are used. Moreover, observation and questionnaire are used to determine requirements of the proposed system. To demonstrate this a system named as HISAA (Housing Information System of Addis Ababa) is developed. HISAA is an Internet-GIS application developed using an open source software, map server with a PHP scripting language. Users of HISAA can display mapfile on their browser from the central server and can Zoom-in, zoom-out and apply query to get certain house information.
