An online urban information system initiative for the Shibuya city, Tokyo
Yigitcanlar, Tan (2002) An online urban information system initiative for the Shibuya city, Tokyo. In International Symposium on GIS 2002, 23 - 26 September 2002, Turkey, Istanbul.
The computing tools and technologies with urban information systems are designed to enhance planners’ capability to deal with complex urban environments and to plan for prosperous and liveable communities. This paper examines the role of Online Urban Information Systems or in another words Internet based Geographic Information Systems as spatial decision support systems to aid local planning process. This paper introduces a prototype Internet GIS model that aims to integrate a public oriented interactive decision support system for urban planning process. This model, referred as a ‘Community based Internet GIS’, incorporates advanced information technologies and community involvement in decision making processes on the web environment. This innovative model has been recently applied to a pilot case in Tokyo and this paper concludes with the preliminary results of this project.
