Geospatial Intelligence for Masterplanning in Practice: Masterplanning Services Toolkit

One of the key objectives is to bring together intelligent modelling, visualisation tools and a pragmatic approach to masterplanning in order to generate, present and test options at appropriate stages allowing for the exercise of judgement and priorities by and for the community.
