Now a days the use of Geographic Information System (GIS) has been increasing enormously. In this study land use planning has been carriedout in GIS platform for Vijayawada urban city, Andhra Pradesh, India. The obligatory data for urban planning have been collected from Vijayawada-Guntur-Tenali-Mangalagiri Urban Development Authority (VGTMUDA). During the execution of the work Geo - Referencing, Digitization and Attributing of different layers have been carriedout. Finally overlapping of all features has been carriedout in GIS platform. From the output ‘Coverage map’, one can easily understand the existing features of the city like major canals of the city, underground drainage and sewage treatment plants, road network intensity, park locations in the city, etc. which are useful for the decision makers to implement management strategies in GIS platform and suggestions are also incorporated for the development of Vijayawada city.

Abstract


Now a days the use of Geographic Information System (GIS) has been increasing enormously. In this study land use planning has been carriedout in GIS platform for Vijayawada urban city, Andhra Pradesh, India. The obligatory data for urban planning have been collected from Vijayawada-Guntur-Tenali-Mangalagiri Urban Development Authority (VGTMUDA). During the execution of the work Geo - Referencing, Digitization and Attributing of different layers have been carriedout. Finally overlapping of all features has been carriedout in GIS platform. From the output ‘Coverage map’, one can easily understand the existing features of the city like major canals of the city, underground drainage and sewage treatment plants, road network intensity, park locations in the city, etc. which are useful for the decision makers to implement management strategies in GIS platform and suggestions are also incorporated for the development of Vijayawada city.
