Integrated Decision Units for land use suitability modeling / April 2022

Instructor: Dr. Changjie Chen; April 11-15, 2022. Total time: 4-5 hours

The Integrated Decision Units (IDUs) are a set of spatial containers, modeled as polygon-based Geographic Information System (GIS) coverages containing spatially explicit depictions of landscape attributes and patterns. Creating a system of IDUs can help make spatially explicit land-use decisions, especially for localities without an existing land parcel system.

The objectives of this workshops are:

1) Understand key concepts of IDU and why it is useful to land use planning

2) Learn to use of 16 tools in QGIS involved in the process

3) Independently create IDUs for different regions
