Geodesign uses stakeholder input, creative design techniques, rigorous methodologies, and spatial analysis and mapping to find the most suitable, environmentally friendly, and sustainable options for how to use space. If we do it right, we can transform how our cities operate.
Cloud computing, big data, the Internet of Things IoT , artificial intelligence AI , machine learning, and Web GIS are in the mix, along with a strategic vision on how to bring everything together to achieve a mission.
What would be helpful in the architecture, engineering, and construction AEC industry would be to bring GIS and building information modeling BIM software—often each an island unto itself—much closer together. Late last year, Esri and Autodesk announced a strategic partnership to better connect the BIM and GIS platforms, with the aim of giving AEC professionals the ability to create better, more efficient, and sustainable designs, especially in 3D.
The hope is that the collaboration will help the AEC community improve design and construction by using more precise geographic knowledge or context, resulting in a greater understanding of how designs would impact the environment. The Autodesk and Esri initiative will also focus on ways to gain more information from BIM data for use in GIS-based operations and maintenance workflows.
The location of trees could be viewed to see how they fit in with the design of a road. And BIM models of a building, bridge, or tunnel could be viewed and analyzed in the correct geospatial location. Her students have used both Esri and Autodesk software in their architecture courses.
For instance, one student used Esri CityEngine to create a 3D model of a jazz history museum and train station for Savannah. The model shows the development in the context of the surrounding urban landscape, including the terrain and nearby buildings and infrastructure. In Revit software for BIM, the student then created interior and exterior designs of the museum and train station. Models created with Esri CityEngine give architects and urban planners a realistic view of their projects, helping them see where a building that is proposed might cast shadows, reflect heat, or even block views for nearby residents.
This type of information is useful in design, according to Wacta. With BIM, we work too hard. Geodesign benefits from communities having access to data and apps that they can use to develop green infrastructure plans. There, people can find maps, apps, and other resources that will guide them through creating a green infrastructure plan. Eric Wittner, from Esri, gave a presentation about the impact that virtual reality VR and augmented reality AR will soon have on planning and geodesign.
The project aims to reduce harmful sun exposure among elementary school students in Los Angeles. Herren and other students have used technology such as GeoPlanner for ArcGIS and ArcGIS Pro to find out where, on one elementary school campus, students get the most and least exposure to ultraviolet light and to determine the best places for locating the sunshades and benches that he helped design. Using a decision support tool that employs ArcGIS technology—plus community input and other factors—TPL identifies areas that would benefit from green alleys.
Many factors go into choosing which alleys could be good candidates for these green spaces, including social vulnerability and environmental equity. Not only are the alleys cleaned and spruced up with greenery, but the impervious surfaces are removed and replaced with pavement that reflects light and is more permeable.
This helps to keep the alleys cooler and reduce water runoff into storm drains. I think some of them have park benches along the way. If designers from across the professional spectrum can continue to incorporate geodesign into urban planning and AEC—as so many organizations and students are already doing—then our communities will only become more resilient.

Geodesign Steps Up to Shape the Future

Although the word GeoDesign and its definition may be newly coined and evolving, Esri president Jack Dangermond observed that the concept of incorporating geographic knowledge into design isn't new as he addressed attendees at the world's first GeoDesign Summit in January It has been going on for hundreds of years," he said, pointing to examples in farming, urban planning, and site selection for stores. For example, farmers have always taken geography into account when deciding what crops would be appropriate to grow on their land and where to locate their farms e. Dangermond and a group of thought leaders from academia and a variety of professions believe it's time to better integrate geospatial technologies such as GIS with design to deal with the planet's most pressing problems.
Last summer, Esri president Jack Dangermond called on everyone who wants to plan a better future—including GIS professionals—to seriously consider becoming geodesigners. Geodesign technologies can be used to create a better future, said Dangermond, especially in the face of challenges like population growth, rapid urbanization, pollution, climate change, and drought. This is different from starting from scratch and building a geodesign platform. So by putting it into the basic platform, what it means is we can take the concepts you are working on to scale. Dangermond encourages robust intellectual exchanges about methodologies and technologies at events such as the Geodesign Summit and Geodesign Summit Europe.
