Land development involves several areas to consider including site geometrics, roadways, drainage systems, utilities, property boundaries, and building sites. GIS software gives you the tools to capture and create new data with advanced mobile capabilities that vastly improve field data collection, inventories, and integration with GPS measurements. With GIS, this data can be stored in a central location, giving you the ability to quickly and easily make any necessary changes.
GIS software greatly enhances the optimum use of land, the functional efficiency of a proposed design, its marketability, and the overall cost-effectiveness of a project. GIS can be used for terrain, hydrologic, land-use suitability, and visibility analyses. It can also be used to assess environmental impacts for determining the consequences of various regulatory requirements.
