Geospatial Land Development Tools supporting US Army Decision Making
Track: Defense & Intelligence
Authors: Jeremy Jurick, Stephen Sanchez
The US Army has used a model in stationing decisions since 2005. This model captures data elements from various Army Attribute owners. One of the attributes is “Developable Area”. This attribute is used to identify the amount of land on Army Installations that can be developed. IMCOM G4 with contract and Installation support developed a Geospatial model using ArcGIS for Desktop and custom software, built on ArcPy and ArcObjects, to determine the amount of land available for development.
