Welcome to GeodesignWiki.com ... a volunteer supported wiki developed by an ever-expanding group of planning and design professionals interested in the subject of geodesign.

The purpose of this site is three-fold ...

  • to introduce the subject of geodesign, what it means, and some of its implications, particularly for those working with geo-spatial data,
  • to facilitate informed conversations about geodesign, and finally
  • to encourage others interested in geodesign to play an active role in the development of this nascent field.

We invite you to Join Us

The primary content of the site has been organized into twelve sections...
