The general layout and design of a nuclear power plant is an important component of its design. This study purports to explore the feasibility of developing related geographical database management technology and applying specialized analysis tools for GIS by using 3-D modeling technology and taking engineering requirements of the layout and design of a nuclear power plant into consideration. A case study has been developed which introduces GIS database management and application based on an actual domestic nuclear power plant. By comparison and optimization of the GIS application system, the study proved that this method can assist planners in designing nuclear power plants, and ultimately improves the safety and efficiency of nuclear power plant construction and operation.
