Designing Affordable Housing

Create desirable neighborhoods with GIS technology

Use powerful tools in ArcGIS to design, analyze, and visualize multiple sustainable affordable housing scenarios

Planning professionals and affordable housing developers can rely on location-based, sustainable design for effective, affordable housing. A high-quality urban and community development housing design needs geographic information system mapping tools to incorporate accessibility to transit, health services, education, jobs, and resources. To be successful, affordable housing projects need to merge with existing developments for cohesive and inclusive neighborhoods; this helps justify policies for more affordable housing.
