Paper Abstract

GIS shows great potential for supporting kinds of decision and management functions that lie at the heart of the planning process. However, data sharing and integration between GIS and urban planning are always problematic. This paper analyzes the root causes of the problem. Then, for finding a fundamental solution, the paper introduces an open data model-CityGML and its application in urban planning processes. As proof of concept, an initial prototype is designed to demonstrate the data sharing and integration based on CityGML.
