Applications of Geospatial Techniques in Urban Planning



The capacity to better identify existing demands for a city and then design to meet those needs is one of the reasons GIS is significant in urban planning. Users understand the land and infrastructure thoroughly by analysing geospatial data via satellite imaging, aerial photography, and remote sensors. The significance of GIS rests in its capacity to compile the enormous volumes of data required to balance conflicting agendas and resolve challenging challenges, such as optimising the location of new buildings or determining the viability of a waste disposal site. 

GIS technology's greater data visibility empowers urban planners. They track changes over time, assess the viability of new initiatives, and foresee how they may affect the environment. To aid in their decision-making, GIS software can also precisely depict the changes on the ground for all pertinent stakeholders. For instance, GIS software may provide visualisations of the current environmental conditions in a location and enable users to compare the expected outcomes of various development plans.
