GIS AND THE COLLEGE OF DESIGN

The mission of the GIS Lab at the College of Design at Iowa State University is devoted to outreach, extension, and research for the education of and service to the citizens of Iowa.  This includes the development and the application of spatial analytical methods to three main areas of research: community and regional planning, landscape architecture, and international planning. The applications deal with a broad range of issues, such as economic development, comprehensive plans, community design, public policy, social and built environment change, streetscape design, 3-D visualization, environmental projects, recreation, poverty assessment, and agriculture.
