Overall, the main goal of the course is to equip students with the necessary tools to use spatial data in urban and regional planning, to make informed decisions, and to develop sustainable plans for the built environment.
Topics Covered: A GIS & Remote Sensing in Urban/Rural Planning and Development course may cover the following topics:
Introduction to GIS and remote sensing: concepts, technologies, and applications in urban and rural planning and development.
Data collection and management: techniques for acquiring, processing, and analyzing spatial data from various sources, such as satellite imagery, aerial photography, and field measurements.
GIS and remote sensing applications in land use and land cover mapping, urban and rural growth analysis, and environmental impact assessment.
Spatial analysis and modeling: techniques for analyzing and modeling spatial data, such as network analysis, spatial statistics, and multi-criteria decision analysis.
Urban and rural planning and development: concepts, theories, and practices related to urban and rural planning and development, such as land use planning, urban design, and sustainable development.
Case studies and project work: practical applications of GIS and remote sensing in urban and rural planning and development, through real-world case studies and hands-on project work.
GIS Theories: GIS theories in urban planning refer to the ways in which geographic information systems (GIS) can be used to support the planning and management of urban areas. Some of the key GIS theories in urban planning include:
GIS-based land use and land cover change analysis: This theory focuses on using GIS to map and analyze changes in land use and land cover over time, and how these changes impact the urban environment.
GIS-based spatial decision-making: This theory emphasizes the use of GIS to support decision-making in urban planning, by providing decision-makers with spatially-explicit information and tools for analyzing and visualizing different alternatives.
GIS-based multi-criteria decision analysis (MCDA): This theory utilizes GIS to analyze and evaluate different options for urban planning based on multiple criteria, such as environmental impact, economic feasibility, and social acceptability.
GIS-based accessibility analysis: This theory uses GIS to analyze the accessibility of different areas of the city to various services and amenities, such as transportation, healthcare, and education, and how this impacts the overall livability of the city.
GIS-based urban morphology: This theory uses GIS to study the physical form and structure of cities, and how it affects urban functions and activities.
GIS-based visual analytics: This theory uses GIS to analyze and visualize large amounts of urban data, and how it can be used to inform urban planning and design.
There are many GIS software tools that are commonly used in urban and rural development planning, some of which include:
ArcGIS: Developed by Esri, ArcGIS is a widely-used GIS software that provides a range of tools for data visualization, spatial analysis, and map creation. It is used by urban planners to analyze and manage spatial data and to create maps, models and 3D scenes
QGIS: QGIS is a free, open-source GIS software that provides similar functionality as ArcGIS, including tools for data visualization, spatial analysis, and map creation.
AutoCAD Map 3D: AutoCAD Map 3D is a GIS software that provides tools for data management, analysis, and mapping, and it is particularly useful for engineers and urban planners in the design and infrastructure management
GRASS GIS: GRASS GIS is a free, open-source GIS software that provides advanced spatial analysis and modeling capabilities, including terrain analysis, hydrological modeling, and land use change simulation.
ENVI: ENVI is a remote sensing software that is designed for analyzing and interpreting satellite and aerial imagery, it provides tools for image processing, feature extraction, and classification, which can be used to map land cover, land use and other characteristics of urban and rural areas
Google Earth Pro: Google Earth Pro is a GIS software that provides a 3D visualization of the Earth and it is useful for urban planners to explore and analyze the urban and rural areas, and to communicate the results of their analysis to stakeholders.
These are just a few examples of the many GIS software tools available for urban and rural development planning. It is important to note that the choice of software will depend on the specific needs of the project and the skills of the users.
Remote sensing is the use of satellites, aircraft, or other platforms to collect data about the Earth’s surface. This data can be used to create detailed maps, images, and other information that can be used for urban and rural development planning. Some common remote sensing tools used in urban and rural development planning include:
Aerial Photography: This involves using cameras mounted on aircraft to take photographs of the Earth’s surface. These photographs can be used to create detailed maps and images of urban and rural areas.
Satellite Imagery: This involves using satellites to take high-resolution images of the Earth’s surface. These images can be used to create detailed maps and images of urban and rural areas, and can also be used to detect changes over time.
LiDAR: This is a remote sensing technique that uses laser beams to create detailed 3D maps of the Earth’s surface. LiDAR can be used to create accurate digital elevation models of urban and rural areas, which can be used for development planning.
Thermal Imaging: This type of remote sensing uses infrared radiation to create images of the Earth’s surface. Thermal imaging can be used to identify areas of urban heat island, assess energy efficiency of building, and detect moisture in building.
GIS: Geographic Information Systems (GIS) are software that can be used to analyze and display remote sensing data. GIS can be used to create detailed maps and images of urban and rural areas, as well as to analyze and visualize data such as population density, land use, and infrastructure.
