GIS technology helps to preserve ancient Vietnam city

Vietnam: The Vietnam News Agency has reported that the application of geographic information systems (GIS) has helped the ancient city of Hue in central Thua Thien-Hue to manage and preserve local heritage sites. The application begins with the tomb of King Minh Mang, which was built between 1840 and 1843 on an area of 28 hectares, and includes 40 structures. GIS technology is being applied to define the values of the tomb and its surrounding area based on different criteria, including historical construction, restoration and tourism potential. Apart from this, municipal authorities are also in the process of developing a tree management plan based on the application of GIS technology.
