City planning and community development is a complex process, requiring planners to have a range of data and information at their disposal.
With Business Mapper, (a GIS based analytics software tool developed by Paperless Trail), city planning and community development is made easier by having a huge variety of geographical and spatial data to analyze, manage and manipulate. City Planning requires being able to see and analyze many layers of data on a map.
Business Mapper can help with city planning and urban development in the following areas:
- Municipal planning committees can analyze prime agricultural land, surface water, high flood frequency, and erodible land.
- The maps provide information about permits issued in the past, (Building permits and zoning permits). Information such as the permit type, issue date and development type.
- Can be used to help businesses decide where to open new outlets.
Urban land planning – check conditions such as topography, bedrock geology, groundwater conditions, and historic geologic hazards.
- Multiple criteria analysis to evaluate the development suitability for various buildings, waste disposal, and natural conservation.
Urbanization has undergone a huge expansion in recent times, due to a dramatic rise in population, preference to live in cities rather than the suburbs or the countryside. The ever increasing demand for urban space presents a conflict between the environment and the human population. Ill planned cities have largely caused the emergence of slums and widespread poverty.
