Geographic Information Systems (GIS) is being deployed in many planning disciplines to combat urban and environmental problems in cities and communities around the world. GIS cutting-edge technology is an effective information management, analytical, and communication tool that is critical in planning for future growth while ensuring smart and connected infrastructure to foster sustainable urban management and growth. Because of its effectiveness in saving time and effort, and its ability to easily share data and provide accurate results, GIS has been increasingly used in almost every field. This paper argues for basic changes in the way GIS software has been commonly used as mapping tools. The widespread misuse and reliance on GIS-based applications as mapping tools should end. The ability to monitor economic, environmental, and social impacts on spatial dimensions provides a comprehensive lens for collaborative community decision making that goes beyond mapping and cartographic purposes to boosting sustainable infrastructure and overall livability of communities.
GIS built-in capabilities allow for multiple criteria evaluation (MCE), which is mainly characterized by allocating various weights to assessment criteria for exploring and ranking different growth scenarios and infrastructure development alternatives. An important advantage of GIS spatial planning support tools is the convenience of changing the valuation criteria to visually illustrate and depict the implications of different spatial decisions and options. The availability of these capabilities needed for decision making in a single system makes GIS an effective planning support system and one that can be easily integrated into the planning processes and workflows.
This paper provides an example of how GIS spatial analytical tools are used as in shaping the decisions we make to foster smart and connected infrastructure conducive for urban growth management, namely identifying and selecting suitable sites for low-density residential development from two contradictory points of view. This paper will demonstrate the value of using GIS to accommodate future growth demand and guide the planning and annexation of cities. It will further provide a framework for sustainable growth management strategies that take into account both the socio-economic and environmental needs.
