How GIS is used to develop Land Use and Transportation Models
Track: Urban and Regional Planning
Authors: Troy Hightower, Colby Brown
There is an increasing need for land use modeling in response to Climate Change Laws. GIS has reduced the resources required to prepare model input datasets from many different sources. This presentation will demonstrate how GIS is used to prepare and manage model inputs and outputs for a GIS based Integrated Land Use and Transportation model. An overview of the modeling process used to develop the Kern Sustainable Community Strategy with model results and maps will also be presented.
