After globalization of the world, the use of latest information technology has been used primarily for large-scale applications such as regional, environmental, ecological natural resources planning and management. Information application (GIS) is explored for the smaller scale urban landscape of the communities and neighborhoods. The case study of the village Noorpura (Satiana Road) Faisalabad, Pakistan reflects on the experience of a design team, that induction of latest technology was highly useful for urban landscape and design particularly, when augmented with a variety of other computerized and non-computerized techniques. In the case of free hand sketching by a trained artist and three-dimensional software that could present representation of the design as they were in process incorporated. The combination of tools provided effective for increasing community understanding and participation in the designing and revitalization of their planned tasks.
The use of inter-net to collect data for predictive landscape preference model is described and tested, including the issues involved in using such a method for data collection and the functionality of the questionnaire.
While the use of IT has become common place in large scale Urban and Regional Planning it has been used far less frequently in neighborhood planning and design projects. The GID data that is usually available tend to be at a much broader scale. Another reason is that citizens do not usually become interested in local land use maps until an immediate event (e.g. a rezoning request or proposed road-building project.) threatens. Furthermore, when a community organization does recognize the value of local hardware and software costs are often prohibitive. Another obstacle is that existing maps provided by local government does not provide details at the local level because they are focused on plans of substantial economic importance, such as major infrastructure, transportation routes, water supply lines, telephone line.
