Quest Lecture: Modelling and Visualizing Community Planning with Quest Tutor Dr. Ian Picketts
Community policies and land-use decisions have significant implications for local human and environmental well-being. Understanding these implications requires a range of interconnected factors when a community develops.
In this talk, Dr. Ian Picketts will discuss how systems models can help us understand how different development patterns influence communities, in terms of transportation patterns, business viability, social connection and other factors. He will share research (led by Dr. Rob Newell), where five distinct future development scenarios for Squamish were explored.
