Geodesign Gathers Momentum | EngagingCities | Geodesign |

The term geodesign,once hard to define, is becoming part of the vernacular in the design field. That observation opened this year's GeoDesign Summit, a gathering of professionals interested in using geospatial technologies to arrive at the best and most sustainable design solutions.

"An online search for the term geodesign peaked at 85,000 [mentions] on the web in 2011," said Shannon McElvaney, project manager for GeoDesign Services at Esri and the master of ceremonies for the summit, which was held January 5–6, 2012, in Redlands, California. "That's a meteoric rise in the last three years. For this and a number of other reasons, I firmly believe that geodesign as a concept is here to stay."
