Authors: Randolph Pullen
To better understand development futures for Chattanooga and Hamilton County, Tennessee, regional sectors were identified using the TransectMap methodology that establishes boundaries within the rural–urban continuum based upon landscape characteristics. Python toolboxes were used to provide extra functionality, document all processing, and allow for analysis replication and enhancement. Planners interpret, communicate, and improve the product through both public and internal critical reviews.
