A System for Geodesign
Geodesign enhances traditional environmental planning and design activities with the power of modern computing, communications, and collaboration technologies, providing on-‐demand simulations and impact analyses to provide more effective and more responsible integration of scientific knowledge and societal values into the design of alternative futures. For practitioners, as well as students and researchers, this requires integration of many kinds of information, and a number of software tools, together in a comprehensive system, as no single familiar software product or approach (CAD, GIS, BIM, etc.) will suffice. The elements of such an idealized system are outlined and described in this paper.
