I recently taught a 1-month long course on GIS Applications in Urban and Regional Planning. We explored how GIS can be applied to solve problems in 6 different thematic areas. In this post, I will outline different applications and show concrete examples of using open-datasets and open-source GIS software QGIS.
Here are the 6 thematic areas
- Land Use Planning and Management
- Crime Mapping and Analysis
- Solid Waste Management
- Urban Infrastructure and Utilities
- Urban Transportation
- Spatial Planning
