Land Developability


landdevelopability


Guangqing Chi has a new website devoted to Land Developability:

"Land developability is a measure of land availability for future conversion and development in a geographic entity, such as a state, a county, a city, a census tract, or other geographically aggregated units. The land developability index is generated using spatial overlay methods based on data layers of surface water, wetland, federal/state-owned land, Indian reservation, built-up land, and steep slope, which are all seen as undevelopable. The land developability index can be used for regression modeling when land use and development is a consideration of an analysis, for detecting potentials for land conversion and development, and for predicting the direction of future land use and development."

This looks like a very useful piece of research data infrastructure.
