Suitability Analysis Using GIS
  • GIS Analysis of LEED-ND Scorecard
    • Smart Location & Linkage
    • Neighborhood Pattern and Design
  • “GeoDesign is a set of techniques and enabling technologies for planning built and natural environments in an integrated process, including project conceptualization, analysis, design specification, stakeholder participation and collaboration, design creation, simulation, and evaluation (among other stages).(Wikipedia, 2013)”
sllp5 floodplain avoidance required
SLLp5 – Floodplain Avoidance (Required)

GIS Analysis – I will do a basic visual analysis to review this prerequisite.

  • Required Layers
    • Installation Boundaries
    • Water Bodies
    • FEMA Flood Maps (online WMSE Service)
npdc6 street network 2 credits
NPDc6 – Street Network (2 Credits)

GIS Analysis – I will use the intersect tool to create points at all road intersections to calculate the total number of intersections.

  • Required Layers
    • Installation Boundaries
    • Street Network
npdc15 neighborhood schools 1 credit
NPDc15 – Neighborhood Schools (1 credit)

GIS Analysis – I will run a buffer analysis to identify schools within the buffer zone.

  • Required Layers
    • Installation Boundaries
    • Schools (Public & Private)

expectations potential issues
Expectations/Potential Issues
  • Technical Issues
    • Basic understand of LEED-ND
  • Does LEED-ND apply in my study area
  • Data Issues
    • Does the data meet the needs of the project
    • Are there any issues with the data layers
  • Final Map would try to identify area where a LEED-ND development can be established.
