Geodesign is a GIS-based planning and design method, which tightly couples the
creation of design proposals with impact simulations informed by geographic contexts. Geodesign as such comprises a set of geo-information technology driven methods and techniques for planning built and natural environments in an integrated process. It includes project conceptualization, analysis, design specification, stakeholder participation and collaboration.

This academic publication brings together a wide variety of contributions from authors with backgrounds in urban planning, landscape architecture, education and geoinformation technology presenting the latest insights and applications of geodesign. Through focusing on interdisciplinary design-related concepts and applications of GIS international experts share their recent findings and provide clues for the further development of geodesign.

The book originated at the Geodesign Summit Europe (2014) held at TU Delft’s Faculty of Architecture and the Built Environment preparing grounds for in depth discussions and future collaborations. This is important since there is still much work to do. Not only in the development of geo-information technology, but especially in bridging the gap with the design-disciplines.
