The learning objectives for this session were:
1. Participants will recognize the capacity of GIS to collect, analyze, and update complex data—ranging from neighborhood character to architectural elements to energy use—within a preservation planning framework.
2. Participants will be able to discuss the role and importance of historic resource surveys in planning efforts.
3. Participants will learn about new methods for completing large-scale historic resource surveys, including crowdsourcing, expanded approaches to public participation, and a mid-level multi-parcel scale.
4. Participants will gain specific direction on potential data sources and process for built environment predictive modeling.
