Model Building to Make Science Accessible
Authors: Juliana Wilhoit, Matthew Hiett, Noah Garfinkle, Elizabeth Bastian, George Calfas
Geodesign depends on the integration of science into the planning process while also creating transparency in analysis. This talk will introduce the framework implemented in CB-SITE to turn scientific processes into suitability and design tools by leveraging ArcGIS Model Builder. Model Builder increased transparency of the process by allowing users to view the tools steps while also reducing a barrier to programming allowing a breadth of scientific processes to be included.
