A Geodesign Project for Upgrading a Deprived Urban Area
The Geodesign Project for Los Claveles, a deprived settlement, included (a) a short display of urban examples of projects developed using ArcGIS tools followed by (b) an exhaustive analysis using ArcGIS tools to propose the urban actions required for organizing and structuring the development combined with (c) a video using ArcGIS Pro, to visualize a future urban scenario in the short and medium run, where designed development controls were applied. Site analysis included the development of a Model of Urban Interstices designed to search for the "In-habitual Space" (or leftover space) feasible for urban occupation, to locate the new urban services required by residents. The new spatial organization was complemented by the guidelines for the growth of the urban tissue. Using ArcGIS Pro allowed simulation of urban growth and change of the facades of buildings, using the proposed guidelines. This became the main instrument for community engagement and approval of the project.
