GIS, 3D Modeling and Geodesign for Sustainable Design and Development

  • Jefferson - Bluemle Life Sciences Building 233 South 10th Street Philadelphia, PA, 19107 United States (map)


This event is organized and presented by Jefferson.

To quote Jack Dangermond, President of Esri:

"Geodesign brings geographic analysis into the design process, where initial design sketches are instantly vetted for suitability against myriad database layers describing a variety of physical and social factors for the spatial extent of the project. This on-the-fly suitability analysis provides a framework for design, giving land-use planners, engineers, transportation planners, and others involved with design, the tools to leverage geographic information within their design workflows."

Join us at the Center City Campus of Jefferson (Philadelphia University + Thomas Jefferson University) for the 5th Annual Geodesign Forum. This year’s forum will focus on the role geodesign technology and modeling plays in the planning and design of the built environment for sustainable, active, and healthier communities that promote a strong sense of well-being. The keynote speaker, Etta Jackson, Founder and CEO of the Institute for Conscious Global Change, will share her experience working with the United Nations Economic and Social Council to achieve the 2030 goals for sustainable development. After the forum, don’t miss the networking social with complimentary food and beverages.
