Chinese cities are becoming larger and urbanization is accelerating with the rapid development of China’s economic construction and formulation of planning objectives. Traditional manual management and information processing methods cannot satisfy the requirements of modern urban planning management. Thus, this study analyzes the application of geographic information system (GIS) in urban planning, starting with the characteristics of GIS technology. Structured analysis and design are conducted for urban planning and the location system. The software engineering approach is adopted throughout the entire process, from the survey to the overall design of the system and database. The evaluation factors of the pension facilities in Baohe, Hefei are extracted through the factor evaluation method, and the weight value is determined. The GIS analysis method is then used, and site suitability evaluation is performed on the Baohe district land layout. Results show that the application of urban planning and a location system based on GIS technology can provide the basis for urban planning.
Keywords: GIS Technology, Urban Planning and Site Selection, System Design, Application Research.
