Green Urban landscapes require sustainable development and management of environmental quality based on trees increasing and maintaining. This is important goal of Nakhonratchasima City Municipality (NCM) development plan year 2018-2022. Therefore, this paper aims to develop ArcGIS web-based Rapid Application Development (RAD) for presenting urban street trees on sidewalks. RAD was selected because of using focus group and continuous iteration. The methodology of this ArcGIS web development used Web Development Life Cycle (WDLC) that included 4 steps: (1) building prototype model of ArcGIS web-based requirement of the 3 focused groups (the 4-NCM official, the 2-concerned academic expert, and the 160 (response back) of 400-NCM resident-based random sampling, (2) developing ArcGIS web-based RAD, (3) testing and evaluating ArcGIS web-based the 3 focused groups above, and (4) implementing and maintaining of ArcGIS web application. The result of ArcGIS web application development comprises of non-spatial (e.g., report of dash broad, trees on sidewalks of NCM roads and field data) and spatial data (e.g., point layer of trees on sidewalks and NCM boundary). This ArcGIS web is defined by accessing 2 levels: administration and users (who are the 3 focused groups). For acceptance evaluation of ArcGIS web, such 3 focused groups were used for evaluating-based questionnaires that they accepted high level as same. In his web evaluation, there were the 6-concerned academic and 318 (reply back) of 400 NCM resident-based random sampling while the number of NCM officers was not changed. Consequently, this ArcGIS web application is able to use for presenting urban street trees on sidewalks. This is creating and promoting a good image and environmental quality and the beautiful urban forest landscape for developing NCM as the smart city further.
