What is Zoning in Urban Town Planning

Zoning has been adopted by most of the countries of the world such as Germany, England, America, Russia, Japan, Pakistan etc. In 1916 first zoning in New York was carried out. The land which is developed without any motive of making profit It includes roads, parks, playgrounds, educational buildings, government offices. The main non profit making use in urban

GPS Constellation and Characteristics of GPS Constellation

A GPS receiver calculates its position by precisely timing the signals sent by GPS satellites. The receiver uses the messages it receives to determine the transit time of each message and computes the distance to each satellite. The GPS receiver with the help of the satellites determine: Time (t) Longitude(x) Latitude(y) Altitude (z)

Principles of Zoning in Urban Town Planning

It is the distribution or division of land (in town planning) into particular zones based upon some criteria or principles. The principles of zoning include the following elements which are given importance while zoning an area. Concentric growth: The growth of buildings which spread from a center in all directions is called concentric growth. These types of buildings

Land Use Pattern | Basic Urban Form Conceptual Frameworks

resembles the Dispersed Sheet urban form of Kevin Lynch, which he described as having “maximum flexibility, personal comfort, independence and where local participation is highly possible”. Trend extension is the result of individuals building anywhere according to their own preferences and convenience with minimal government intervention.

Sources of Errors in GPS and their Correction

Slight inaccuracies in time keeping by the satellites can cause errors in calculating positions. Satellites drift slightly from their predicted orbits which contributes to errors. Let the GPS receiver receive signals from 4 satellites, then there are two cases: The satellites are at 90° to each other w.r.t the GPS receiver. For demonstration purpose we will take 2 satellites

Masterplan of City - Baku, Azerbaijan

A Master Plan is a general plan for the future layout of a city showing either the existing and proposed streets or roads; open spaces public buildings, etc. A city is historically established and the most rational and sustainable form of human settlement. Owing to objective regularities of regional town planning, cities have repeatedly been rebuilt, changing their

Problems of Urban Sprawl

Land use pressures are particularly mounting on the edges of the urban areas; much of the land resources and capital lies in private hands. This puts a heavy responsibility on public bodies to maintain the balance between urban development and conservation needs. Urban planners do not seem to realize that class I and class II agricultural soils are a scarce and

Urban Problems and Challenges

Excessive size both in population and geographical area 
 Where the economic base of the cities is inadequate to cope with problems created by excessive size Tremendous amount of land being gobbled up by sprawl of cites, especially giant conurbation. The loss of agriculture land to urban/industrial sprawl is of grave concern. Once loss this prime land cannot be replaced.

Characteristics of Planning

There are six characteristics of planning which are of prime importance: The use of available resources as economical as possible, so as to achieve the greater possible measures of improvement within limited resources. Sustainability means that there should be a balance between people and resources. Use of resources in such a way that the environment should not

Integration of GPS and GIS

GPS are becoming very effective tools for GIS data capture. The GIS user community benefits from the use of GPS for location data capture in various GIS applications. The GPS can easily be linked to a laptop computer in the field, and with appropriate software.

Scope of GIS Project Management & Planning

determine who are the stakeholders/users help the client to understand the capabilities of GIS determine what the client’s goals or what they “need to know” begin to identify background resources and data sources

Why Urban Drainage Systems are necessary

Urban drainage systems are needed in an area because of interaction between human activity and natural water cycle. This interaction has two main forms; The abstraction of water from the natural cycle to provide water supply for human life; Covering of land with impermeable surfaces that divert rainwater away from the local natural system of drainage. If untreated

Introduction to GeoInformatics

It is a software development and services company providing Geographic Information System (GIS) software and Geo-database management applications. The headquarters of ESRI is in Redlands, California. ESRI uses the name ArcGIS to refer to its suite of GIS software products, which operate on desktop, server, and mobile platforms. ArcGIS includes the following

Working Mechanism and Components of GPS

Each of the 24 satellites emits signals to receivers that determine their location or range by computing the difference between the time that a signal is sent and the time it is received.

Classification of Urban Land Use

Category includes all types of wholesale, retail and service activities serving areas larger than neighborhoods. Included in this category are the ff: Major Central Business Districts in urbanized areas Minor Central Business District in less urbanized areas Highway Service Centers or Commercial Strips such as highway gas stations, traveler's inn and restaurants
