Translating Geodesign to Practice

In late February 2020 I attended my last professional meeting in person before the COVID shutdown: the 2020 Geodesign Summit at Esri Headquarters in Redlands, CA.  I gave the very last talk on the last day of the Summit. My presentation was voted the Best Lightning Talk of the 2020 Summit.

This 12.5 minute talk shares an example of how my team of students implemented the Steinitz Geodesign framework entirely with web-based GIS tools, to assist a rural community with potential development decisions.

I recommend playing at 1.2x speed.
