GIS: Designing our Future

Designing our future, a vision that combines the wealth of data available about our world with sophisticated analysis and management tools is the prescription for understanding and shaping the future of our planet—an anthropogenic future where advances in human society, technology, etc., are designed in close collaboration with nature, resulting in the best of possible future worlds. Fully leveraging geography during the design process results in GeoDesigns that emulate the best features and functions of natural systems, benefiting both humans and nature through a more peaceful and synergistic coexistence. Today with GeoDesign, GIS becomes a tool for designers; they can move rapidly through an iterative design process while leveraging the full analytical power of the geodatabase.
