Working with a city’s existing geospatial data on land use, streets, transit, and critical areas, we use the newest technologies to develop multi-variable, customized models ready for easy analysis and stakeholder engagement.
Looking at issues such as available housing stock and job creation, we work with you to assess residential and employment lands to determine if targets and projections will be met.
Global warming, sea level rise, flooding, and intense weather activity require communities to re-assess land use patterns. Our climate scenario modeling visualizes how these and other environmental conditions will impact a region, pointing to at-risk areas that may require less intensive land use.
We prepare a baseline condition for your existing zoning code and comp plans, allowing you to assess measures for livability (distance to parks, schools, transit, essential services), and whether your community is adequately prepared to handle future population increases and impacts to critical infrastructure and resources.
The majority of urban areas across the United States are experiencing significant growth and migration. With this influx of people, issues of affordability, diversity, and congestion arise. Public agencies, planners, and politicians must find new ways to envision and communicate solutions to these issues.
Urban plans—whether they are comprehensive, or specific to subareas, corridors, or nodes—are only valuable if they can provide substantive analysis and metrics to set future benchmarks for successful city building.
We harness geospatial “big” data and apply progressive urban planning methodologies to create easy-to-understand planning models that help all stakeholders understand the impact of policy decisions, assess investment opportunities, and envision future growth in cities and towns across the globe.
