Esri Book Details Benefits of Geodesign in Planning

Redlands, California— June 25, 2012— Geodesign: Case Studies in Regional and Urban Planning, a new book from Esri, is an important addition to the growing body of knowledge contributing to our understanding of the geodesign process.

"Geodesign provides a new way of thinking that integrates science and analysis into the design process," says author Shannon McElvaney, project manager at Esri. "It gives designers robust tools that support the rapid evaluation of different designs and visualization of the probable impacts of those design alternatives. Ultimately, the geodesign process helps us move from designing around nature to designing with it."

Geodesign: Case Studies in Regional and Urban Planning presents case studies from around the world that exemplify the key steps, processes, and technologies crucial to geodesign. The book illustrates the burgeoning need today for simulating the impact of design decisions in near real time, enabling decision makers to meet or exceed goals of sustainability, regulatory compliance, cost reduction, or social equity. The book will be of particular interest to urban planners, geographers, and landscape architecture faculty and students.

Geodesign: Case Studies in Regional and Urban Planning (ISBN: 978-1-58948-316-3, 160 pages, US$19.95) is available at online retailers worldwide, at esri.com/esripress, or by calling 1-800-447-9778.

    Pretty basic PR item from ESRI; regarding publishing a book that is not new or even novel approaches to design. Practices that have existed for 30 years in the Landscape Architecture and Planning communities written up and pushed by ESRI as new and prophetic principles is just bad...
