Base planning requires careful consideration of the placement of facilities, not only with respect to operational requirements (such as antenna line-of-sight) but also with repect to community concerns (such as air operations). Planning is greatly enhanced when design and planning methods (i.e., CAD and GIS) function in harmony. This paper will highlight the development of a system that combines the design attributes of CAD with the analysis power of GIS.
