This study aims to analyze and manage commands using Geographical Information System (GIS) techniques, were used for editing and checking boundaries of land parcel in form of digitized GIS data from satellite and aerial imagery. The study area was focused on Kham Sakae Saeng district where establishes in Nakhon Ratchasima (NK) province of Thailand. For method, ArcGIS ModelBuilder was used for modeling GIS tools. Firstly, we planned the workflow from the concerned Department of Lands (DOL) officers that was divided into three groups: editor tool, reshape tool and topology tool. Then, the used GIS tools in each group were represented in form of diagram on ArcGIS ModelBuilder including running and validating model. In three diagrams of ArcGIS ModelBuilder, using reshape tool and topology tool have the high accuracy that 92.02% and 81.07% respectively. Using editor tool has the lowest accuracy (60%). This study suggests increasing of accuracy that should have to expand the details of the sequent process of caused tool. For this approach, the ArcGIS ModelBuilder tool is advantageous for automating the process; this also allows easy updates on data and analyses of checking shape of land parcel boundary. This automated checking is a flexible, time-saving, and cost-effective tool for screening large areas for the DOL practical officers.
