  Spatial data are inherently complex because they deal with location as well as spatial variation, distribution, and interaction of the spatial features in the environment. Further, they are characterized by their multidimensional nature, involving large storage of data and therefore high processing cost. Spatial database are developed using relational data model, resulting unacceptable performance during retrieving and manipulation of data. On the other hand, object-oriented data model can be seen as an appropriate alternative at this point. The paper will present a comparison between the two approaches, in the light of their database architectures, in handling spatial data. This is followed by the object-oriented presentation of the implementation framework for one of the complex spatial data models (polygon). The complexity analysis between relational and object-oriented approaches taking the mentioned data model (polygon) into account will also be presented. This will demonstrate that object-oriented approach provides a better way in retrieving spatial data.

  The study described the composition and status of undergrowth (shrubs, herbs and grasses) in a degraded deforested area of Chittagong (South) forest division, Chittagong, Bangladesh. A stratified random quadrat method was used in the study. The area on the whole consists of 45 species of undergrowth of 31 families. Shrubs layer includes 14 species of 12 families and herbs and grasses include 31 species of 19 families. Among the shrubs Clerodendrum viscosum shows the highest density (94 plants/100 m2) and Cassia alata shows the lowest density (8 plants/100 m2). The highest frequency was found in Clerodendrum viscusum (50%) and lowest frequency was found in Corcorus capsularis (5%). The highest abundance was recorded in Corcorus capsularis (13) followed by Ipomoea fistulosa (11) and Lantana camara (11). Among the herbs and grasses Imperata cylindrica shows the highest density, frequency and abundance (7638 plants/100 m2, 77% and 394, respectively) followed by Cynodon dactylon (687 plants/100 m2), Unidentified–4 (265 plants/100 m2). The lowest frequency (5%) and abundance (3) were recorded in Pueraria sp. and Musa paradisiaca, respectively. Abundance frequency ratio of each shrubs, herbs and grasses are >0.05 showing the contagious nature of each species distribution.

  The prime objective of the study was to investigate the role of non government organization (Ali Foundation) in improving socio-economic and physical condition of the patients of thalassemia and hemophilia the study was examine the problems faced by the patients. 100 respondents were selected from Ali foundation. Well designed questionnaire consisting of structured as well as nonstructured questionnaire was used in this study we explore the research objective. The appropriate statistical techniques such as descriptive and inferential statistics were used for data analysis.

  To explore the value of plants in creating a positive community atmosphere, urban planners have looked at the role of plants in several related areas such as environmental preferences and perceptions, neighborhood satisfaction and economic impact including residential property value and value to recreation and tourism. In urban tree-planting planning, sociological factors may be more important than biological factors in terms of tree survival because planting without community involvement in planning or implementations lacks support at the grass root level and is therefor open to all kind of hazards. Faisalabad is the third biggest city of Pakistan and is presently undergoing a developmental transition form a sort of semi-rural to an urban outfit with new roads, parks, green belts and waterways under construction and old ones being renovated. A research study was designed to assess the changing requirements and responses of the population of residential areas and institutions of the city in respect of landscaping/tree plantation. A questionnaire was developed to document the perception of people visiting the sites and interviews were held with the residents who were prepared to donate funds for landscaping activities. The landscape plan/design was developed on the basis of document analysis according to the requirements of the people both visiting and residing there. Different features like walking tracks, dust bins, child play areas, flowering shrubs for semi privacy and trees for complete privacy were included in the landscape design. All the selected trees and shrubs were evergreen because they require minimum maintenance and contributed more to greenery in the dry environment. The design received a quick response from the community and had great impact on Faisalabad environment. All the wasteland in the interior city has been greatly improved and it helped to curb pollution, enhance blodiversity and beautify the city at the same time. The general community as well as industrial communities funded the projects, which showed that whole community as well as improve upon the environment, which ultimately reflected the changing attitude of citizens of Faisalabad towards landscaping. It was also evident that without community involvement, urban planning cannot work no matter planning and execution process.

  The study describes the structural composition of a degraded forest of Chittagong, Bangladesh. Stratified random quadrat was used in this study. Tectona grandis was found as dominant with 28.87% of the total individuals, Diameter at Breast Height (DBH) range less than 5 cm represent highest percentage (66.14%) of all the individuals however the largest DBH range >17 cm represent only 0.84% of all the individuals. The number of trees and the number of species was the highest (158 and 32, respectively) in the <5 cm DBH range and least number of trees and species (1 and 1) was represent in 15-16.9 cm DBH ranges. Height class <3 m consist of the highest individuals (55.67% of total population). Tectona grandis showed the highest percentage (28.8%) followed by Ficus hispida (12.97%), Eucalyptus camaldulensis (7.53%), Albizia lebbeck (5.86%) and Gmelina arborea (5.44%). Number of trees and species are decreased with increasing height and DBH classes. This may be due to recent adopting management measures like protection of the area for biodiversity conservation.

  The study describes the potential visitors of Mirpur Zoological garden, an outdoor recreation area of Dhaka, Bangladesh. The maximum number of visitors was found in the age of below 30 years (72%) and older age groups represents only 28%. Sixty three percent male and 37% female constitute the visitors group in the study area. Literate person constitutes about 93% and student represents 38% visitors in the study area. About 40% visitors are employed. Most of the visitors (62%) were found visiting in family groups and the least numbers (5%) were visiting alone. Maximum visitors (45%) have come from medium family and the lowest numbers (18%) were from rich family. Maximum number of visitors (36%) visit the area with a cost of 51-100 Tk. Maximum visitors (76%) of the study area is city dwellers. Highest number of visitors (71%) preferred to get recreation in the holidays. It was found that most of the visitors (40%) visit the garden more than twice, 33% visit the garden twice and the least number (26%) visitors have not visited the area before. Maximum visitors (67%) stay at the zoological garden for 2-3 h and only 3% visitors stay in the garden for whole day.
