Urban Planning

Planners require solutions that address day-to-day work needs while also fostering the ability to effectively predict and respond to chronic urban problems and future market fluctuation. Today, planners utilize GIS around the world in a variety of applications. The following articles illustrate how GIS is being used as a platform to  planners reach their goals of creating livable communities and improving the overall quality of life while protecting the environment and promoting economic development. GIS tools can provide the necessary planning platform for visualization, modeling, analysis, and collaboration.

Case 2 : Title : Surface Modelling

Overview :

This work was designed  the process of creating, manipulating, computing and presenting the surface in a 3D software package. We have created/prepared a data such mass point height , forming a Digital Terrain Model (DTM) from the height information, computing the slope and aspect parameter , generated the viewshed and hillshade , forming breaklines, generated contour lines, as well data visualization fly through.

Triangular Irregular Networks (TIN) has been used to represent surface morphology. TINs are a form of vector based digital geographic data and are constructed by triangulating a set of vertices (points). The vertices are connected with a series of edges to form a network of triangles.
