Abstract:

Site analysis is the key to a well-designed project. In fact, the careful and complete analysis of a site and its surrounding context can lead to better development proposals, smoother design implementation, and, ultimately, higher quality built environments. This carefully conceived book is the first to detail each crucial step in the site analysis and planning process, from site selection through design development. It shows how these activities are integrated to arrive at a site plan that successfully balances the needs of the client and other stakeholders with the site's suitability for the intended land uses. With more than 130 illustrations, this book includes many outstanding examples of maps and site plans created by leading land planning firms. It offers guidance on: * Site identification, evaluation, and selection * Site inventories of physical, biological, and cultural attributes * Land use suitability analysis using Geographic Information Systems (GIS) * Concept planning and design development * Graphic communication with clients, government agencies, and other stakeholders.
