Digitalisation of the master plan of Helsinki
The project implemented by the City of Helsinki is developing a digital data model that will further facilitate the processing of land use planning data.
What kind of problem is the project trying to solve?
Currently, the mining, processing and transferring of land use planning data in the different planning stages includes both file management activities and transferring of visually interpreted data for further use. Further processing is not only laborious, but also entails the possibility of errors or misinterpretation. By developing the land use planning data, it is possible to ensure better interoperability and readability of the data regardless of the stage of the land use planning process.
Objective: “Making land use plans available to everyone”
The purpose of the project is to develop the information management of local detailed plans so that the information will benefit all stages of land use planning in the best possible way and to improve the compatibility of the information in terms of concepts, structures, technical form of distribution and revision management. The development of information management is aimed at making the life cycle of land use data manageable from the point of view of everyone involved and providing good-quality and reliable data through technically up-to-date open interfaces throughout the entire value chain of land use planning, construction and maintenance.
The most important users of land use planning data are the actors involved in the building activities in the city and those involved in organising land use. Data on land use planning is distributed in a variety of ways from anticipation until when the plans gain legal force.
