After 2 1/2 years of gestation, John Ottensmann is showing off his baby, LUCI, in central Indiana.

“LUCI, which stands for the Land Use in Central Indiana Model, is a computer program designed to forecast urban development for the central Indiana region,” said Ottensmann.

Ottensmann is a professor of planning and associate director of the Center for Urban Policy and the Environment at Indiana University–Purdue University Indianapolis.
