Dr. Carl Steinitz

Dr. Carl Steinitz will be offering a preconference seminar on geodesign at the 2012 Esri User Conference:

“Dr. Steinitz provides an in-depth overview of GeoDesign processes, looking at both rural and urban environments. He describes a framework for doing GeoDesign (design in geographic space) using six model types for assessing the geographic context, for proposing changes and for evaluating the consequences of those changes. He then shows how this framework and these models can be used to understand, plan and manage a variety of landuse/management projects. He presents nine different strategies for proposing change and shows how they can be applied to different problem types at different scales, discussing the pros and cons of each in different situations. The seminar provides the participants with the equivalent of a graduate level seminar on GeoDesign.”

This seminar will be held from 1:30 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. on Sunday, 21 July 2012 in San Diego, California
