Services: Policy analysis, Geographic information systems, Strategic planning

Research Areas: Economic Development, Land Use & Environment

(Center authors Dona Sapp and Greg Lindsey)

This report is part of a 2003 contract between Center for Urban Policy and the Environment (CUPE) and the Center for Earth and Environmental Science (CEES), to assist with research tasks associated with the Central Indiana Water Resources Partnership.

This first phase analysis involved the use of data and tools available to CUPE and limited acquisition of new information.

CUPE also identified additional data and research tools that might be used to conduct additional studies of the relationships between land use, nutrient loading, and reservoir management during future phases of the project. The focus of this work was to prepare a plan to guide data collection for use in geographic information systems (GIS) and in models of watershed and reservoir systems.
