CAD and GIS Integration in Planning, Architecture and Engineering

Computer aided design and geographic analysis have earned their place in modern architecture, planning and engineering. These specialized technologies, enable professionals to communicate better through simulations and visualizations of their works and ideas. Computer-aided design (CAD) is the use of computer technology for the design of objects, real or virtual. CAD often involves more than just shapes. As in the manual drafting of technical and engineering drawings, the output of CAD often must convey also symbolic information such as materials, processes, dimensions, and tolerances, according to application-specific conventions.

Sustainability of High-Rise Tenements in Nairobi

In recent years Nairobi has seen the massive growth of mammoth high-rise developments in the name of apartments. They have attracted some research by Marie Hzermeyer and Baraka Mwau among others. They come up in many shades - but typically they are dense and feature small rooms. From one perspective they are viewed as the answer to the housing shortage and alternative to slums.
