Leading landscape architect and planner Carl Steinitz has developed an innovative GIS-based simulation modeling strategy that considers the demographic, economic, physical, and environmental processes of an area and projects the consequences to that area of various land-use planning and management decisions. The results of such projections, and the approach itself, are known as "alternative futures." This book is a case study of one such project - an analysis of development and conservation options for the Upper San Pedro River Basin in Arizona and Sonora, Mexico. The book gives a comprehensive overview of how the study was conducted, along with descriptions and analysis of the alternative futures that resulted.
