“Geodesign is a design and planning method which tightly couples the creation of design proposals with impact simulations informed by geographic contexts.”
“…[a] framework for design projects which required iteration, feedback, and collaboration”
Three core areas
Put people first
People need tasks and goals
There's a reason you need a collaborative geodesign tool, and a reason your stakeholders should be using it. Don't put something in front of them without a clear task or goals, grounded in the real world.
Why belabor this?
Every project is different.
Every team is different.
Do what you need to do.
Cramped quarters? Wide open spaces? As with any event, get familiar with the space(s) you'll have to work in ahead of time, if possible.
People may not know each other,
they may not even like each other,
but they need to be able to collaborate.
What medium? Or, media?
Pencil & paper
Windows 8.1 (not by choice?)
The right tool(s)…
…support the people (and their task)
…work in the environment
…allow for iteration, feedback, and collaboration
Support the people
Tools that support “mistakes”
Anticipate (or observe) needs
Tools that provide valuable reference data (layers)
