Using GIS for Highway Design: A Case Study

Abstract

Aline

Geographic Information System (GIS) is being used in various projects and research areas.
It has been widely used in a variety of applications for planning, presenting, and analyzing data
and results. Nowadays, many factors should be included in road design in order to preserve the
environment for example. Using GIS will help make road design less time and money consuming
while taking into consideration all important factors. Road design includes three steps:
planning, project development, and final design. In this study we will focus on the planning step
using GIS. GIS permits us to include factors such as endangered species and historical sites in
the planning process. Different factors can also be ranked according to their importance. A case
study is shown to demonstrate the proposed methodology. Land use and land cover maps are
used to define the factors with the demanded classification.
