Authors: Jung Seo, Simon Choi, Frank Wen
SCAG has developed the SCAG Map Books for 197 local jurisdictions in the region, as the first stage of local input process for its long-range transportation plan. The SCAG Map Book consists of a series of maps depicting land use, resource area and geographic boundary of each local jurisdiction. To automate map production and regional database processing, SCAG staff developed an automated workflow using Python scripting, which offers benefits in time and cost savings and higher quality.
