Finding strategic locations for informed urban planning in a changing world

The world is fast-moving. Technological advances are happening and urban planning remains to be an important aspect of development. More and more people choose to live in urban areas for education, work and for improved health services. Now more than ever, we need urban planning to keep these spaces in order and where are needed the most. However, the process has a lot of challenges, including that data collection is tedious and prone to errors.



Suitability is an urban planning tool that identifies optimal location for a specific activity within a city. Suitability also supports national urban planning agencies and city governments to perform land suitability assessment to plan for infrastructure deficits at the city and local levels, enabling inter-departmental coordination and a strategic planning approach.
