Harvard University – Graduate School of Design – GIS Manual GIS (Tutorials and Resources)

The Graduate School of Design (GSD) is home to Harvard University’s graduate programs in Architecture, Landscape Architecture, Urban Design and Urban Planning. Each of these endeavors is very information intensive. The work of designers and planners amounts, in large measure, to these information processing activities:

Designers and Planners:

  • Collect and organize information as a means of modeling the phenomena and relationships that are critical to understanding a place.
  • Create new information by altering models to simulate and explore the possible consequences of proposed or probable alternate futures.
  • Share Information and Understanding with colleaques, clients and critics to better collaborate and participate as a member of a team and society.
