Urban Planning and Development


Year: 2008
Client: Batumi Municipality

The city of Batumi is one of the main ports and oil terminals of Georgia. A Land Use Master Plan was developed for the purposes of future multifunctional development of the territory of Batumi to organize territorial arrangement, regulatory rules and strategic vision of prospective development. The Land Use Master Plan determines the urban planning zoning types and their boundaries by functionality, territorial-structural features, planning restrictions and urban planning values.

In 2007 “GeoGraphic” together with the French Company “FIT Conseil” conducted aerial survey on the territory of Georgia, including Batumi and its surroundings. This recent aerial survey data together with topo-geodetic and cadastral data enabled to update and specify the existing topo-geodetic base. At the same time socio-economic surveys were used to develop comprehensive and renewable geodatabases integrating information on social and cultural objects in Batumi and their location, including address information, city transport and engineering network schemes, environmental protection and cultural heritage preservation zones, construction and reconstruction zones, etc.

Data analysis enabled to identify and define the boundaries of the city, to develop general and concrete functional zoning of the city territory, to plan urgent urban planning measures, etc.

Client: “Mtatsminda Reconstruction and Development Project” Ltd

Formation of Mtatsminda district in Tbilisi started in the second half of XIX century, when the city began its intensive growth resembling classical city planning of European style. “Zeda Ubani” was established on the complex relief of Mtatsminda slopes. However, the district has been never reconstructed and most of the buildings are in dangerous conditions.

The proposal presented by “GeoGraphic” considers reconstruction of existing development: slight change of street network, removal of dangerous buildings (except architectural monuments), increase of existing average number of storeyes - from 2,3 to 3,5, significant growth of number of parking and well-organized areas. Expected growth of population is around 25%.At the same time, the scale, structure, morphology of development, valuable views and panoramas, and traditional architectural-artistic appearance of the district will be preserved.



Year: 2008
Client: Borjomi Municipality

The spatial arrangement plan of Borjomi municipality is provided to plan future territorial arrangement and development of Borjomi in the directions of demography, economy, tourist, environmental protection, cultural heritage preservation, transport, communication network, etc. Formation of geodatabase collection and systematization of information of different kind were of great importance during the spatial arrangement plan development.

Natural-landscape map of the Borjomi district illustrates important natural landscapes of the district: Borjomi-Kharagauli National Park, protected territories of Nedzvi and Ktsia-Tabatskuri managed reserves.

Resort Borjomi and some of the local sub-centers occupy central part within the spatial structure of the Borjomi district.
In compliance with the decree of the Government of Georgia, recreational and resort map of Borjomi Municipality illustrates the resorts, their recreational areas and protected zones.



Year: 2008
Client: Borjomi Municipality

A land use master plan of the territories adjacent to the village of Bakuriani (Tsikhisjvari, Mitarbi, Patra Mitarbi, Tori) represents the document on utilization and development regulation of the territory in compliance with the existing situation and prospective development goals.

Development of Didi Mitarbi is firmly related to the sport infrastructure of Resort Bakuriani following from the fact that ski piste in Didi Mitarbi is connected with the sport base “Kokhta Gora” in Bakuriani. Territorial arrangement of the village foresees residential and industrial, sport and recreational zones, public center subzone and their boundaries.

Street network is planned. Mountain Kodiani near the village of Tsikhisjvari is ideal for ski tourism development and the situation plan of the village is developed to reflect this specification.



Year: 2007

Land use master plan of Georgia’s ancient resort, Abastumani, is developed on the basis of field survey results and archive data analysis and determines development regulation rules, functional zoning, structural and spatial arrangement of the resort territory.

Within the frames of historical-cultural master plan the list of national and other monuments was specifi ed, historical structure, development regulation and historical landscape preservation zones including boundary description and preservation regimes have been highlighted.
