Contribution title: Application of Information Technology and Impact of
Cyber Eco Cities in New Millennium
Interesting for participates: Because the paper focused around three
key contemporary planning paradigms (i) 'sustainable development'
(ii) communicative planning (iii) 'culture of cities'.
Content of my Contribution: Information technology can play and important
role in the urban and regional planning. Its application in resource
inventory and management, urban planning, land records, amenities
management, market and retail planning, vehicle routing and scheduling,
watershed management, wasteland development, environmental impact
assessment, disaster management, etc. has already been established and
lot of work is going on in the field of urban and regional planning and
allied activities using advantages of information technology services.
First I will attempt to throw some light on the current information
technology scenario, in India with special emphasis on how it can play
and important role in planning and sustainable development of cities of
tomorrow. Then focused around three key contemporary planning paradigms
(i) 'sustainable development' (ii) communicative planning (iii) 'culture
of cities'. I will also discuss in my contribution the application of
information technology in urban planning and its activities and management
of cities through Geographic Information System (GIS) and city
transportation system through Global Position System (GPS). Then I will
like to highlight about the impact of Cyber Eco Cities spatially,
economically and socially. My contribution will be concluding with
strategies and recommendation.
Personal involvement: Presently I am involved with Central Pollution
Control Board, New Delhi on Ward Bank Funded Environmental Management
Capacity building Project through GIS.
Session: Session 3 'Cyberspace and the Loss of Concentration
