community based planning
Community-based Planning
  • At local level, provide GIS support for local discussions
  • Where is it already happening, where might it be encouraged
  • At macro level, allow plan information to be combined on one map
  • See city-wide distribution of plans and implications
  • Allow neighborhoods to identify others with similar concerns
