National participant geospatial information system in urban planning

Keywords: urban planning, NPGIS, air-space, time-place, innovation


Puporse.  The title of air-space in the spatial part is not just a noun, but it is quite effective in determining its conditions. National Participant using new spatial information system including software, hardware in synchronous and asynchronous environments. Also, explaining the role of the National Collaborative Spatial Information System in the effectiveness of urban planning

Methods. Introducing the national software in the process of participation along with the spatial information system. Statistical analysis along with interpretations based on statistics, especially Spearman's correlation. Also Using all the criteria and factors that have been used so far to participate with GIS in a spatial and non-spatial way.

Results. There are short discussion related to the formation of the software, the formation of the environment and hardware and all the existing criteria, and then the evaluation process, proposed for the participation-oriented information system, continues. The methods are discussed and then the discussion related to the case study and evaluation of the usability of the participatory spatial information system and requirements engineering as a support tool for participatory planning in the municipality was discussed. In the end, statistical analysis along with interpretations based on statistics, especially Spearman's correlation, are discussed and demonstrated. The reason for the topic of decision-making is based on statistical analysis, not just comparing decision-making with analysis, because sudden decisions like early humans are usually made in natural events and away from dangers and the like. This issue has not been seen in any dispute so far. In the following, we realized that the time factor and then being on time are the most important factors along with the economic criterion. Although planners were expected to be decisive, the results showed otherwise. In practice, it was proved that the basis of software, mathematical and statistical analysis decisions of the groups is the reason for the rise of the economic standard, along with the time factors, which are very necessary in improving the participation with GIS. The role of the power and wealth layer is still colorful and unlike the priorities, the fastest and most dominant decisions are made by this. in this study Time is a decisive factor.

Conclusions. Based on the results obtained and due to the misleading nature of the time issue, it cannot be managed, and people should not worry about time management, because they lose their focus. Therefore, they should manage their concentration and be focused in the moment. It is only in this way that one can use the time effectively and continue the desired activity. Finally, by programming and creating collaborative decision-making in asynchronous and synchronous environments, NPGIS is introduced in an organizational form.
