  1. Department of Landscape Architecture and Urban Planning College of Architecture Texas A&M University April 24, 2002 Site Selection Analysis for Apartment Housing Development under given criteria- A Case Study of College Station, TX using a GIS Approach - Presented By Jin Y Jun

  2. Table of Contents • Introduction – purpose, frame work and flow chart of analysis • Land Use Analysis • Hazard Area Analysis • Residential Amenity Analysis • Results and Conclusion

  3. Data used / Framework of Analysis Introduction Purpose of the Project • To Search for potential sites best suitable for the development of apartment housing under given criteria • Data used : College Station GIS database • Land Use Analysis  Land use type and zoning classification • Hazard Area Analysis  Floodplain zone and soil type • Residential Amenity Analysis  Airport, railroad, parks, and elementary schools

  4. Flow Chart of Spatial Analysis Introduction Land Use Analysis Map Land Use Type Zoning Class Land Use Analysis + = Preliminary Candidate Sites Map Flood zone Soil type Hazard Area Analysis Map Hazard Area Analysis + = Residential Amenity Analysis Airport & Railroad Parks & Schools Final Candidate Sites Map

  5. Land Use Analysis GIS Analysis Analysis Criteria :  Land use type: Vacant land  Zoning classification: Apartment housing (R-4, R-5, R-6) Analysis Result :  169 parcels identified as vacant as well as zoned as R-4,5,6  Refer to the ArcView map layout on the next slide…

  6. Hazard Area Analysis GIS Analysis Analysis Criteria :  Should not be in the 100-year floodplain zones  Should not belong to the soil types unsuitable for apartment housing construction  Should be at least 500 feet away from the above 2 criteria Analysis Result :  119 parcels identified as suitable outside the 100-year floodplain zones (Overall soil type is standard for residential Housing construction.)  Refer to the the ArcView map layout on the next slide…

  7. GIS Analysis Residential Amenity Analysis Analysis Criteria Airport and Railroad Buffer Analysis :  Should be at least 1 mile away from airport and railroad.  Parks and Elementary Schools Buffer Analysis :  Should be within half a mile walking distance to parks and elementary schools. Analysis Result :  4 final candidate sites identified as apartment housing development in College Station  Refer to the ArcView map layout on the next slide…

  8. Results and Conclusions Site Filtering Process Land Use Analysis Hazard Area Analysis Residential Amenity Analysis Final Candidate Sites 169 Candidate sites 119 Candidate sites 4 final candidate sites Results & Conclusions Final Result :  Refer to the ArcView map layout on the next slide…
