GIS Based Urban Road Network Analysis in Khartoum Center

Authors(2) :-Suaad M. Abuelwafaa, Mohamed ElAmin Ahmed Babiker

One of the main key role in urban spatial organization is the urban road network. ArcGIS Network Analysis extension allows to build different spatial network and provides multiple solution to problems related on it , such as finding best and most efficient route , identify the closet facility and providing directions to access paths and determining the service area based on time and distance .This study illustrate the service area covered by hospital ,shopping center and universities that located in Khartoum center separately , and also help to determined inefficiency of this service in certain areas ,the IKONOS image of Khartoum has been subset ,geo-referenced , digitized to generate facilities locations and road’s shape file which has been generating topology and different analysisof road network in Khrtoum center was established.
