Webinar: How Geodesign is Busy Envisioning and Engaging with Your Neighborhood

Posted by on Jun 29, 2015 in Headlines | No Comments

Never before has there been such a need for planning and design professionals to anticipate future trends, propose solutions and help communities and decision makers make the wisest, most well-informed choices possible. A new design approach — one rooted in the history of design practice and enabled by rapid advances in technology — has emerged to meet that need. This approach, called geodesign, provides the framework and tools needed to explore issues from a transdisciplinary perspective and to resolve conflicts between differing points of view.

Join Houseal Lavigne Associates, PlaceWorks and Esri as they explore how geodesign and GIS technologies can increase your project success, highlighting the issues through several exciting case studies. Devin Lavigne, principal at Houseal Lavigne Associates, will provide insight into their approach to integrating procedural modeling into their design workflow, adding efficiency to their 3D production pipeline. Robert Kain, GIS manager at PlaceWorks, will share how their adoption of Web GIS and GeoPlanner has enabled them to make location-driven decisions on many of the firm’s land use planning projects. Brooks Patrick, geodesign account executive at Esri, will provide an overview of geodesign and discuss how Esri’s ArcGIS platform supports geodesign implementation.
