Geographical Information System, Town Planning, Planning Process
Monitoring on implementation some development plan is important to ensure development planning activity exercised in accordance with time fixed. To control, monitor and planning systematically town, the method used is development plan preparation method and urban development monitoring and also the blue print method. However, this method makes it difficult process of monitoring and management of the rapidly growing city and developed. Only with these constraints, will lead the planning process cannot be well controlled and involves a significant period of time. Hence, right pace to overcome town planning problem is by implement Geographical Information System (GIS). This is because, GIS is able to support the urban planning process. The use of GIS in urban planning can develop database and generate planning needs analysis according to the Town and Country Planning Department. Therefore, this paper discusses the use of GIS in urban planning. The findings showed the implementation of GIS can improve the quality of urban planning process, saving time and costs and data can be obtained faster.
