The aim of the prepared plots arrangement optimisation method and the connected software was among others to decrease the labour demand and to increase the quality during the preparation of the farms plots arrangement conception, carried out during joining or other land management works. An important feature of this optimisation, which distinguishes it from other similar elaborations, is the way of the plots location description in comparison to the farm settlements. It was assumed that the location will be determined on the basis of the borders of existing plots. Thanks to that, the optimisation result is the determination of new allotment of the existing plots to farms, which is characterised by the shortest distance of lands from the settlements maintaining the existing area structure of the farms. The prepared software for optimisation of lands arrangement in a village, together with the software for automatic matrix compilation of the distances from lands to settlements requires relatively low demand of labour. Performing the optimisation of the land system in an average fragmented village with an appropriate numeric map should not last longer than one or two working days including preparation works. It enables the practical use of the developed method in works relating to the estimation and modernisation of the village land systems.
