Paper Abstract

The Virescence Separator of Beijing, the capital city of China, is a virescence zone between the central area and the edge group as well as the zone among different edge groups, within irregular shape and the total area of 240 square kilometers. The construction of the Virescence Separator is a big and difficult project, an effective information system for planning and development with satisfactory performance is therefore essential. In this paper, the applications of remote sensing and GIS (Geographical Information System) technologies in BJVSIS (planning and development Information System for Beijing Virescence Separator), including three dimensional (3D) visualization, integrated databases management and multi-media technologies, were presented. The initial pilot project of BJVSIS was finished successfully in 2001, and up to now this information system runs very well and plays a great role in the construction of the Virescence Separator. Just depended on the applications of so many high-tech like GIS, remote sensing, 3D visualization, and databases integration, BJVSIS can manage all kinds of relevant geographic data, such as vector graphics, DEM (Digital Elevation Model), image and multi-media attributes. And BJVSIS also provides many GIS functions, such as spatial query, 2D/3D display, spatial analysis, statistic calculation, form report and map output.
