Cape Town GIS Data
The Cape Town Municipality GIS data is available to users in the Built Environment Library. Data is of the city of Cape Town from 1998 until 2012. The data can be viewed using ArcGIS software installed on one of the three computers in the BEL Technical Library.
Students are encouraged to find and extract necessary data in the library and manipulate the data using AutoCAD software available in the department computer labs. Tutorials for identification and extraction are on the computer desktops.
There are also a number of manuals and reference materials available in the Libraries for further information such as:
