Geographic Information Systems is a powerful urban planning tool that provides functionality to capture, store, question, analyze, display and produce geographic information. Moreover, it is a technology that encompasses the study of spatial (geographic) locations and features on Earth’s surface and the relationships between them. Because urban planning fundamentally involves the study of locations and spatial relationships, today’s employers are looking for graduates of urban planning and urban design programs with good command of GIS. Particularly, professionals with spatial analysis techniques and GIS project management skills are on demand in order to effectively deal with multi-faceted urban planning issues. Environmental Systems Research Institute’s (Esri) ArcGIS software suite has become a standard in the industry and is used by many government agencies, non-profit organizations, and private firms engaged in GIS analyses.
