Abstract

This study provides platform to the utilization of Geographic Information Systems (GIS) in advancing sustainable development within the built environment vis-à-vis pivotal role of GIS in fostering sustainability in construction and urban planning through innovation, education, and training. The study investigates the pivotal role of Geographical Information Systems (GIS) in sustainable development, motivated by the increasing recognition of GIS as a transformative tool. The research aims to understand why GIS is crucial in shaping sustainable development initiatives, delving into its historical evolution, diverse applications, and contributions to achieving sustainable development goals. Employing a methodological approach that combines surveys, and literature analysis, the study meticulously explores GIS implementation in various contexts by distributing a structured questionnaire to the respondent from Federal School of Surveying, Oyo and staff of Environmental Studies, Federal Polytechnic Ede . Data gotten was analyzed using descriptive means of analysis and presented using table. The findings underscore GIS's significance in enhancing decision-making processes, resource management, and environmental conservation. Successful case studies in environmental conservation, disaster response, and urban planning exemplify GIS's positive impact, despite acknowledged challenges in data accuracy, accessibility, and interoperability. The most crucial result identifies GIS as a transformative tool influencing sustainable development goals. The study recommends leveraging GIS for informed decision-making, urging policymakers to address challenges in data management to unlock GIS's full potential in sustainable development initiatives.
