Section: Applications Technical level: Intermediate Session type: Lecture Status: Confirmed & scheduled


To provide a contemporary perspective for understanding the Real estate Markets (Processes, Resources and Market participants) through a GIS based framework.


The real estate property life cycle comprises four elements: i. Policy decisions that initiate the transaction ii. Origination, following the acquisition of the property iii. Operations, embracing the management of the property iv. Conclusion, involving the disposition and completion of the property involvement.

The real estate process involves inherent interdependent symbiotic relationships between market participants (Developer, Capital Source, Service Provider and Space user). This session covers Spatial Analytics which involves integrating data from several disparate sources within a GIS based analytical framework. Data sources include but are not limited to census maps, cadastral maps, zoning master plans, market value publications of the government and surveys of leading developers to provide market value assessments.


An open mind and a basic understanding of maps.
