Abstract

This paper will show that the combination of aerial photography as a source of up-to-date housing - and environmental data, with GIS-techniques for data-processing, analysis and planning has the potential for improving the ability of planners to monitor the changes occurring throughout the city and to respond quickly to planning problems with a better understanding of the issues at hand. Another constraint in developing countries is the availability of money: the envisaged data-acquisition and processing-method has to be inexpensive. The rapid and inexpensive data-acquisition and - processing-method will be elaborated on by experiences obtained from applying GIS to monitor and plan future development of the Manzese squatter area in Dar es Salam, Tanzania. -from Authors
