CHARM: A Participatory GIS Platform for Non-Technical Stakeholders
CHARM is an interactive, sim-city style, table-top mapping platform that provides hyper-localized planning and mitigation support. It was developed using ESRI’s ArcGIS and CommunityViz plugin at Texas A&M, and has been a key technology for impactful outreach and engagement. The presentation will cover how this GIS technology assists communities around the state with stakeholder-led approaches to holistic, long-range land use planning, development and mitigation. The presentation will also cover new technologies the program is developing to support Texas GLO’s state digital infrastructure for improved planning.
