The work describes a case study in which Geographic Information System (GIS) technology was used as a tool in developing an existing de relict site into one with new construction purposes and infrastructure . The case study identifies all the necessary available resources and types of spatial information required includ ing topographic mapping, geotec hnical data and survey of past land uses. In order to facilitate investigation of modell ing and handling probl ems. data of different resolutions,' formats .. and.. sources are brought together in a GIS application package. Integration of data in such a manner has been found useful and advantages as proven by the results of procedural measures adopted in the studies. TIle two procedural measures were namel y, (i) to check the appropriateness of some generic GIS funct ions customised for civil engineering applications and (ii) to check if GIS technology is capable of handling data managementfor civil engineering purpo ses
