Design Tools in an Integrated Cad-Gis Environment: Space Syntax asan Example
Second Design and Decision Support Systems in Architecture & Urban Planning (Vaals, the Netherlands), August 15-19, 1994
The focus of this paper is how to make good use of the possibilities offered by integrated CAD-GIS software. It addresses the problem of the difference in types of information required by urban designers and urban planners to perform their tasks. It is stated that there is an overlap in these types of information. Both planners and designers can benefit from the extension of information offered to them by the other party. Integrated CAD-GIS software facilitates the exchange of information. There is a need for implementation in the integrated CAD-GIS environment of a type of information that addresses designers and planners alike. The paper takes Space Syntax models as an example of such information.
