A group of urban planning students from University of Engineering and Technology (CRP-10) including M. Aamir Basheer, Imtiaz Hussain, Imran Nawaz, Zohaib Anwar, Iqra Ismail, Rohail Javaid, Ghulam Mustafa, Akram Anwar, Adnan Khan, Aniqa Azam, Areesha Gul has prepared GIS based peri urban structure plan of Okara City using high resolution satellite image. The map includes Points of interest , Existing urban boundary , Existing land uses, Proposed Roads, and Proposed urban block.
This is a true addition to the existing effort on GIS mapping of Okara which was done by Munawar and Nausheen (CRP-08) in 2009. Previous map can be seen HERE.
High resolution, contemporary data on human population distributions are a prerequisite for the accurate measurement of the impacts of population growth, for monitoring changes and for planning interventions. The AsiaPop project was initiated in July 2011 with an aim of producing detailed and freely-available population distribution maps for the whole of Asia. This appears to be the highest resolution data on the subject available in open source as of today.

Here is the raster soil layer for the soils based on shear wave velocity of 30 meters.
Vs30 measurements (the average shear-velocity down to 30 m) are correlated against topographic slope to develop two sets of coefficients for deriving Vs30: one for active tectonic regions that possess dynamic topographic relief, and one for stable continental regions where changes in topography are more subdued. The soil layers that are generated were based on Active Tectonic values.
This GIS datasets contains polygonal boundaries for 170 union councils of Rawalpindi urban area as well as Rawalpindi District. This geo-dataset is more reliable for urban area and seems to be less accurate for rural towns.
This GIS map consists of polygonal boundaries for 118 union councils of Faisalabad urban area. It has been developed and generously shared by Nasar min Allah Bhalli (M.Phil) from Department of geography, GC University Faisalabad.
