Geodesign Summit 2016

Landscape architect and urban planner Arancha Munoz-Criado, who used geodesign concepts and technologies to develop a green infrastructure planning framework for the government of the autonomous region of Valencia, Spain, will be the keynote speaker at the 2016 Geodesign Summit.

The annual summit will return for the seventh year to Esri headquarters in late January, with presentations, workshops, and meetings centered on geodesign and supporting technologies including GIS. Geodesign is an iterative planning and design method that combines the science of GIS with the creative aspects of design to help planners and designers make imaginative and data-driven decisions. A growing number of practitioners are using geodesign technologies, including city planners, architects, landscape architects, conservationists, and scientists.
