Around the world, organizations use GIS to visualize the built environment, make smarter plans, engage stakeholders, and foster vibrant communities. Government leaders, partners, and citizens increasingly expect engaging online maps of their communities that convey planning information in an easy-to-understand way.

The emerging field of geodesign, combined with innovative online GIS tools, creates dynamic platforms that inform, educate, and build consensus. They allow planners and others to approach projects and arrive at decisions in new and exciting ways. Speakers introduce geodesign concepts and interactive, web-based tools and explore how they have been used to support current and advanced planning projects.

Geodesign depends on community participation and consensus. Project outcomes are based on an equitable, inclusive planning process built on feedback and interactive decision making.
