The need for the production of Topographic Information System (TIS) of Federal School of Surveying, Oyo arose due to the absence of Topographic Information System for proper planning of the school. Therefore, TIS was carried out with the aim of producing a tool for effective planning and land management of the school. Field and Office reconnaissance were carried out in order to be familiar with the terrain and do proper planning on the methodology and equipment to be used for the acquisition and assembling of spatial and attribute data. The geometric (spatial) data were acquired by ground survey method using Total station (South S74301) through the process of traversing, detailing and obtaining spot heights which were carried out simultaneously. The data processing were adequately and effectively done using Leica Geo Office Tools and South NTS Software for Data downloading, Notepad and Microsoft Excel for editing and preprocessing, AutoCAD 2016 for draughting, Surfer 11 for generating the Digital Terrain Model (DTM) and 3D Wireframe Map while ArcGIS 10.0 version was used for spatial analysis, query generation and information presentation. A model database was created and structured using the relational table format. The interpretation of the maps and queries produced, supports decision making policy needed by the Land surveyors, Architects, Engineers, Urban and Regional planners to plan, design and execute vital infrastructural projects in the school. It was recommended that TIS should become a lasting tool for decision making and management of land and its resources for effective and sustainable development.
