Authors: Kristy Senatori, Paul Niedzwiecki, Bret Whiteley, Anne Reynolds
Economic growth and the environment on Cape Cod are interdependent. The Cape Cod Commission developed a web-based multi-variant planning tool that evaluates economic and environmental impacts of development. This ArcGIS Server application built in Flex enables users to generate and manipulate development scenarios, calculate costs, tax revenue and benefits, and visualize impacts. A user can modify scenarios making it easier for communities to put the right development in the right place.
