As land use planning evolves, planners must embrace the latest technologies and tools to help stakeholders make land use decisions without being overwhelmed. Recent changes in geospatial tools and technologies are enabling this shift from data overload to data sensibility.

Join the Smart Growth Network to learn how geodesign can help to guide stakeholders to consensus through a process of collaboration and negotiation enhanced by geospatial technologies that visualize scenario alternatives in real time. This webinar will feature Kelleann Foster, RLA, ASLA and David Goldberg, ASLA, of Penn State University, and Jesse Suders of Tetra Tech.

Geodesign is a place-based planning process that combines creative problem-solving with geospatial data. Admittedly, the geodesign process is more labor intensive than traditional land planning practices; however, the ability to shorten the typical planning process, plus geodesign’s track record of success, can outweigh concerns about adopting this new tool.

Stakeholders react well to being able to see – through real time mapping and “dashboards”—the consequences of their land use choices.

Participants of the live webinar are eligible for 1.5 AICP continuing education credits.
