Digitial Charretting for Smart Growth
To more effectively develop smart growth plans, urban designers and planners can learn how to use GIS and digital charretting at a special hands-on workshop at the APA National Conference in San Francisco March 21-22, 2005. Workshop participants will form "design teams" seeking the best solution to a development versus preservation problem using INDEX planning support tools in real time.
Teams will set goals for a neighborhood plan, design and evaluate alternative scenarios, and determine which scenario is the smartest growth solution. The charrette will be conducted in two parts on March 21 and 22; prerequisites include familiarity with urban design and GIS.
Workshop registration is available at www.planning.org/2005conference for the session entitled "Using a GIS Charrette to Find Smart Growth Answers." The cost is $50 in addition to the basic APA conference fee. The workshop is co-sponsored by ESRI and Criterion Planners, developers of INDEX planning support software.
