How does the evolution of geospatial technology impact the future approach of a land developer? | Spatial Sustain
The plight of the land developer is tough right now, given the housing bubble and the long-lasting impact of available credit due to the global recession. This downturn has had it’s Darwinian moments though, because the developers that took a more irresponsible tact with cheaper and more homes as fast as they could be built have taken the hardest hits, and in many cases are no longer in business.
The demand for new housing will not go away anytime soon. However, new development plans are under increasing scrutiny regarding the value that they bring to communities, and the impacts that they’ll have on quality of life. This growing sentiment of more reasoned development plays neatly into the hands of evolving design and planning approaches as well as supporting geospatial technologies.
