The study was carried out to test the suitability of using the Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) to acquire spatial data for the development of a Cadastral Information System in Agodongbo Phases I and II and was achieved by designing and creating a spatial database for the study area and flying an UAV over the study area to acquire the imagery of the area at a resolution of 1.0m with the flight time of 45 minutes 02 seconds over the entire area of 67 hectares which generated 981 images. The objectives were to identify the boundary of the study area, to use UAV to capture the images of the parcels and the buildings therein, to digitize out the features using ArcGIS software, to populate tables for the entities created, to perform spatial queries and analyses on the database created and then present information from the analyses. The results showed that 119 parcels (15.08%) out of the total of 789 parcels are less than the standard plot sizes, the parcels are classified into six categories of uses, 455 parcels fall in Phase I and 334 in Phase II. It was concluded that the use of UAV in data gathering for a Cadastral Information System is possible and relevant. It is therefore recommended that the use of UAV should be encouraged because of the speed of delivery of work and the vacant parcels in the Estate put into good use like recreational purpose which is lacking in the Estate.
