Geographic Information Systems (GIS)

Geographic Information Systems (GIS) have become an essential tool for understanding the environment. It follows that the GIS software has become an invaluable resource for both Architects and Planners in conceptualizing the built environment, and has focused on developing infrastructure and research that explores new possibilities for the uses of GIS.

GSAPP’s GIS infrastructure includes workshops, classes and a collection of GIS data pertaining to the urban environment. This page provides information on how to use GIS, a summary of data on the GIS server, and links to data sources on the web.
