Data assembly involved the creation of a composite map using existing GIS layers and sketched additions gathered on the first day of workshops.
Fighting Climate Change
In Cape Cod, Massachusetts, the Volpe National Transportation Systems Center began a pilot project to address climate change by facilitating transit mobility planning at the state, regional, and local levels. The collaborative design charette took a number of diverse stakeholders through the geodesign process, from defining of issues to the comparison of design alternatives and selection of a final scenario map. This study demonstrates the communicative power of geodesign using spatially informed models, fast feedback, and a large format sketching environment.
