GIS and Land Use The Envision Utah analysis was admittedly an extremely ambitious undertaking.  Not all areas will have the resources to undertake such an extensive or coordinated effort. The GIS analysis relied upon a substantial effort to collect land use and zoning data A qualitative, consensus-based land use forecasting approach has the advantage that it incorporates considerable locally developed expert knowledge.  Complications


Limitations Difficulties in predicting transportation models for areas.  The air quality metrics showed only small differences among scenarios.  http://envisionutah.org/toolbox_pdf/Chapter_6.pdf
