Dynamic GIS and Strategic Physical Planning Support: A Practical Application

  • Chapter

Part of the Advances in Spatial Science book series (ADVSPATIAL)

Abstract

Information and communication technology is a booming sector, not just in financial and employment terms, but also in the products and facilities which have been created in recent times. Product life cycles continue to get shorter, as exemplified by the continuous updates of software, and potential fields of application continue to widen. The technology is no longer envisaged as just an essential component of the gross national product or as a competitive commodity within our national knowledge infrastructure. Increasingly, it is considered as a tool which lightens workloads and helps us to manage more complex activities in our working lives. One example of the latter is the increasing role technology is playing in the field of physical planning.
