Divining LA: Digital tool for urban design and water-use plannin

This digital tool for urban design in water stressed environments uses multi-spectral satellite imagery, digital terrain models, and geotechnical datasets. It models precipitation, soil quality, land use, and groundwater contamination in a dynamic, publicly-accessible instrument for architects, landscape designers, and planners. It aims to maximize low-carbon localized water supply, reduce dependence on water imports, and to guide water-smart planning by supporting site assessment.
