GIS for urban planning

The strategic use of 3D Geographic Information System (GIS) technology has enabled Singapore’s urban planners to overcome the challenge of land scarcity and put the island nation in the enviable position of one of Asia’s most liveable cities.  

3D GIS technology maps and analyses current and potential urban developments, giving planners the ability to depict, visualise, and assess the best possible design.

In particular, 3D GIS for urban planning helps to:

  • Improve decision making
  • Optimise land use
  • Empower a mobile workforce
  • Improve cross-organisation collaboration
