Carl Steinitz introduces geodesign

Geodesign is a set of technique and technologies that use geographical information systems (GIS) for mapping, analyzing, evaluating, visualizing, and negotiating future land use scenarios with a variety of stakeholders. 
 
Geodesign permits the facilitation of planning objectives and plan making through spatial systems analysis and public engagement. 
 
On Feb 1 and 2, Carl Steinitz, an internationally-recognized leader in geodesign, led a workshop introducing the strategy to a group of planning scholars, GIS experts, planning professionals, educators, public stakeholders and commercial developers. As a case study, the workshop focused on design opportunities created by the addition of Thunderbird Global School of Management as a new ASU campus on the west side of the Greater Phoenix area.
 
The workshop opened with a lecture, "Geodesign Dynamics."  The video is available for viewing here.
