GIS and Urban Planning

Spatial information is critical for urban planners. Planners rely on parcel, zoning and land-use data, transportation networks, addresses and housing stock. Urban and regional indicators need to be tracked to follow evolving community needs. Agencies at the regional, state, county, and local levels are realizing the benefits of GIS technology and are using it to solve common problems.

Following are recent examples of how GIS is integrated into various aspects of the field of Urban Planning:
