Forecasting Land Use Activities 8 - Creating and Visualizing Land Use Forecasting Scenarios



Date: Thursday, December 15, 2011
Time: 2:30pm - 4:30pm Eastern Time
Location: Online


We are very excited to be bringing you a new eight-part webinar series on Forecasting Land Use Activities. This webinar series will be an update to the popular one-day seminar from several years ago. The eighth and final webinar in the Land Use Forecasting Webinar series focuses on the creation of the scenarios to be modeled, and on visualizing output from land use forecasting models. The webinar will cover aspects such as how to incorporate local information on land use plans and zoning to provide scenario inputs that constrain development densities and building types, in addition to travel network configurations incorporated through the travel model system. Visualization of model results will also be addressed, using indicators, maps and 3D visualization of urban landscapes. The webinar closes with a synopsis of the state of the practice and prospects for further development and application of land use forecasting methods.
