Webinar: Using GIS to Improve Planning Decisions, part 2 (CM I 1.5)
October 7, 2011 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm
In this second presentation on using GIS analysis for making planning decisions, we will examine the landscape effects of residential development scenarios. Planners and resource managers have long sought to better control land development via the regulatory framework. Recent developments in GIS have made the development of policy scenarios relatively easy to document and analyze. Future residential development was simulated using GIS based on conventional and density-based zoning regulations for a set of Wisconsin communities. We then measure landscape fragmentation at complete build-out and compare policies between communities. Of particular interest is the potential for this type of analysis to help assess and illustrate the degree to which a town or county is moving towards the goals expressed in their comprehensive plans.
