GIS for Urban & Regional Planners and Realtors Training

Home GIS Courses GIS for Urban & Regional Planners and Realtors Training

Robust spatial analysis techniques enable firms and local governments to evaluate sites, plot out marketing plans , perform site selection/suitability analysis, land sale, market analysis and optimize tenant management strategies. By incorporating findings from multiple databases, like census data and financial history, real estate professionals and urban planners can precisely assess a plot of land’s value and make predictions about future developments.

Geographical Information System (GIS) is widely used as a valuable tool for management, analysis and presentation of various and great volumes of data, as well as different local planning activities.
