GIS technology changed the way cities are planned. Software suite like ArcGIS supports complex large data analysis, simulations and management. At the Department of Architecture and Urban Planning in Novi Sad students learn how to integrate their knowledge about urban planning and architecture by using several essential components of ArcGIS.In this paper various approaches in spatial and data analysis based on GIS technology are introduced. Also several student work case studies are presented. Temporal change of urban morphology through graphs and animations and spatial analysis of present urban structure are two major topics presented in this work.

An internet-based land
valuation system is being developed to replace the scientifically obsolete
Hungarian land valuation system, the so-called AK (“Gold Crown”) ratings. The
new system is supported by a GIS and it is unique in its capability of
providing an up-to-date index of soil quality and land value. The geographical
information is provided by national map databases on genetic soil maps and soil
attributes at the scale of 1:10.000, combined with cadastral maps, digital
terrain model, topographic map, orthophotos of aerial photographs and agronomic
field records. The automated algorithms are easy to update, can be made legally
binding and can provide a transparent system for land taxation, calculation of
subsidies, appropriation. Given that detailed (1:10,000 or finer) soil map
coverage will be completed for all lands of Hungary (at date only 60% of the
croplands have soil maps), this way a multifunctional system will be available
that promotes an optimum use of land resources.

Methods for georeferencing and GIS applications of the maps and plans from the 16th century until 1990 are described. The results of georeferencing — derivatives of historical maps, show a high value and potential of usability for the studies of urban areas — for historical issues, and for more comprehensive planning solutions allowing better development and policy. The applicability of the georeferenced historical maps was explored according to time series analysis. The studied were the applications for the urban area of Ljubljana, Slovenia case study: observing the continuous changing of the river course of Ljubljanica river and railway network.

GIS adaptation and digital reambulation of large-scale soil information
originating from various agrogeological surveys has become a key issue in
Hungary due the recent challenges. The
national programme initiated by L. Kreybig for the systematic, 1:25,000 scale
practical soil mapping of Hungary was carried out between 1935 and 1951, and
provided detailed soil information (1:25,000 scale maps and complementary
database in the form of explanatory booklets) for the whole country. Later farm
level (1:10,000 scale) soil surveys fulfilled the practical requirements of
Hungarian agriculture, producing a huge quantity of map based, soil related
archives still represent a valuable
treasure of soil information at present. Their digital reambulation and GIS adaptation
is a challenging task, which was initiated by RISSAC GIS Lab in co-operation
with various institutions. The aim of these activities is the development of
large-scale soil modules of a Hungarian production database for the
determination of the optimal functions of agriculture in a given region,
together with the harmonization of agricultural production and the protection
of land and environment.
