GIS for Land Development Analysis by Community-Based Organizations -- March 22-23, 2004

GIS for Land Development Analysis by Community-Based Organizations -- March 22-23, 2004

Lincoln Institute of Land Policy


GIS technology (including web-GIS) is increasingly used by community based organizations (CBOs) for land development projects and policies geared at improving a community's overall quality of life. As a result, several issues have emerged for these groups, ranging from accessing resources and data to software, staffing and funding. CBOs must keep up with the rapidly changing technology while still accomplishing their central mission. Participants will be exposed to general strategies for successful GIS implementation; information about on-line data resources for local uses; and a range of land development projects and analysis that can be accomplished using GIS case studies on the types of projects and analyses that can be accomplished using GIS.

COURSE OBJECTIVES:
Participants will:

learn how CBO's can use GIS technology to assess, evaluate and monitor land development projects and policies in their communities;

learn how and where to access on-line date resources, and how to use appropriate GIS functions and methods as part of a community land evaluation assessment excercise; and

identify various elements of building a successful GIS operation, including related issues such as capacity building and funding.
