The Application of GIS to the School Mapping In Bangkok

Reports on the development of a database that integrates GIS data with information on available non-spatial school-related data from all ministries and Bangkok Metropolitan Administration (BMA). Findings enable the interpretation of the current haphazard school allocation by GIS analyses. The application of GIS to the school mapping has been suggested as a useful tool to find the appropriate sites of locating new school buildings efficiently and rationally.
