Bio/Research

As a landscape planner, David Flanders is interested in applied planning and design research that bridges science and decision-making via participatory processes. Studies range in spatial scale from local communities to regional and global systems, which are modeled using 4D (3 dimensions over time) landscape visualization techniques. This work explores future scenarios of land-use that integrate drivers of environmental change such as climate and development with responses such as adaptation, mitigation, and energy planning strategies. As part of this, multi-criteria and spatial analysis, numerical modeling, public input, and visual assessment can assist stakeholders in selecting appropriate developmental pathways forward. David’s background is in landscape architecture, ecology, geography, and forestry, and his work has taken him throughout Western and Northern Canada and Mexico.
