In our second Geodesign Studio (GEODZ 852 - Urban/District Challenges) we focus on the complexity of urban and district-scale landscape change issues.
The Esri 2015 Geodesign Summit took place in Redlands, California in late January this year.

Penn State’s Master of Professional Studies in Geodesign successfully implemented its first exclusively online studio course this spring.
Caitlin Smith is the newest faculty member to join Penn State’s online Geodesign graduate program.

The MPS in Geodesign from Penn State is offered entirely online. A difficult bridge to gap will be creating a studio feel in an online environment.

Earlier this month, Professor Kelleann Foster spoke with Andrew Barbour, an editorial freelancer with eCampus News.
Back in October the Head of the Department of Geography at Penn State , Dr. Cyndi Brewer, was featured in a Wired.com magazine article.
Could this work in your town? Altaeros Energies has developed a heluim filled wind turbine that has the ability to float over towns and harness the wind power at higher altitudes. Not only that but it can provide data coverage and cell phone services to users on the ground. Imagine trying to work these into your geodesign framework!
