Ervin, Stephen M. 2015. Proposed Map of a Geodesign Research Agenda: Eleven Key Questions in an Eight-pole Space. In Proceedings of Digital Landscape Architecture Conference, Dessau, Germany, June 4-6, 2015: 71-80.
The development of a robust and credible geodesign discipline will depend equally upon an ever-growing inventory of excellent real-world examples of projects embodying geodesign principles, and upon the development and pursuit of a rich and rigorous research agenda that informs geodesign theory and practice. To this end, following a consideration of several precedents from the GIS literature, a research space with eight poles is proposed. Mapping twenty or so not-quite-randomly collected examples of proposed research questions into this space yields a promising framework for an emergent research agenda, summarized by eleven key geodesign research questions.
