Background

This briefing on Municipal Planning and GIS - part of the Local Development Dialogues - aims at sharing practical examples of the potential for using geographic information systems (GIS) as a tool to support municipal planning and decision-making processes. Using GIS approach offers much more than static mapping and greatly facilitates the understanding of existing situations, future planning needs, and the potential impact of planning decisions at the local level.

The briefing will provide useful insights to all those interested in applying GIS in urban planning, as well as to those interested in the process of urbanisation worldwide.
