Contingency construction enables militaries to project influence and provide humanitarian services. This presentation introduces CB-SITE, a toolkit leveraging the ESRI platform and spatial data through increasing resolutions of analyses to help planners identify suitable locations and associated local risks for construction projects. CB-SITE provides a platform for analyzing spatial variables about the operational, human, natural, and built environments in order to inform decision-making.
