Among the obstacles that hamper effective management and decision-making in urban development process are the absence of integration between the works of the professionals involve in such process and the unavailability of immediate and reliable data to form the basis for sound decision-making. Thus, this paper proposes that a city-wide spatial information system to be developed comprising two major elements: a common platform for integrating the works of the various built environment professionals and a city-wide built environment database. While the common platform will help to streamline the works of the professionals, the database will assists urban government in making sound and informed decision in relation to planning, management, maintenance, and monitoring of the urban built environment. This paper also highlights the efforts of the International Islamic University Malaysia (IIUM) in developing its spatial information system. The system is designed to provide information on the IIUM property that covers buildings, infrastructure, facilities, and space to decision-makers and managers to help them in making sound decision and in implementing effective property management scheme.
