GIS Seminar

Examining the Impact of Residential Development on Natural Resources Using GIS

Asli Gӧҫmen, associate professor of geography and environmental studies, University of Wisconsin–Madison

Abstract

Residential development on previously undeveloped land in the rural-urban fringe can be detrimental to local natural resources and productive lands. Conservation subdivision design, a residential development technique that is used as an alternative to conventional subdivision design in the rural-urban fringe, has been promoted to deliver economic, social, and environmental benefits. Conservation subdivision design clusters residences in smaller lots than conventional development; in return, it preserves the remaining subdivision land in shared open spaces, most often in an undeveloped state.

In this seminar, with the use of geospatial data analysis, Gӧҫmen will examine the extent to which conservation subdivision design has protected ecological and agricultural lands and contributed to wildlife presence.
