March-September 2010: GIS Based Sustainable Growth Model for South College Station- work experience with the city of College Station,TX Avideo presentation can be viewed and the full report can be downloaded at http://workspall.blogspot.com This project has developed a growth model for south College Station area, exploring the viability of incorporating sustainable development concepts in a real world scenario. The methodology involves participatory approach for multi objective decision making with GIS based analytical process. The project uses analytical hierarchy process in map overlays and map algebra for locating community swimming facility; uses vector analysis for incorporating street furniture on bike and pedestrian ways and for finding target areas to implement sustainable energy practices. The project recommends strategies for developing the upcoming south College Station area through the defined goals and objectives attributing to the cause of sustainable development in an incremental way, and then using them in a GIS based analysis for practical implications. The goals and objectives in compliance with the comprehensive plan 2009 have made sustainable and cost effective recommendations. The project's is to identify the most favorable site for the allocation of a community swimming facility against many upcoming private pools, addressing the issue of water conservation in the city of College Station. The site suitability analysis based on Analytical Hierarchy Process has been used for this goal using the criteria of land use plans, walkibility to the existing neighborhoods, proximity to the new development areas, access to the main roads and market land values in GIS based modeling. The participatory approach in this analysis has helped achieve unbiased results in the weighted overlay map outputs. first goal Figure1 : Result for the goal 1 showing possible sites for locating community swimming facility using Single Output Map Algebra (SOMA) 3. Conclusion The GIS based sustainable growth model for the south of College station is a strategy based planning method which focuses on project viability in terms of cost, time and resources. Issues of water conservation, environment, neighborhood safety and aesthetics are tackled by using GIS based modeling with raster and vector calculations. Multi Objective Decision making, using Single Output Map Algebra (SOMA) was used with a participatory approach in evaluating scores by pair wise comparison in the analytical hierarchy process that has brought less biased results in map outputs. The second goal aims for identifying sites for installing street furniture that will also suffice the need of natural surveillance on streets. The installation is planned in a prioritized manner by conducting GIS based vector analysis for this goal. The installation will take place dispersively in phases for benefiting a larger population in one go than pouring the initial resources in a concentrated area. Recycled materials are recommended to be used for the construction at the least possible cost and solar powered advertisement billboards have also been recommended on some of the street furniture for recovering the cost in the long run.

The study also focuses on understanding various factors that can bring about social, cultural and economic augmentation in Bihar by up gradation of traditional skills in terms of product innovation and income generation under the guise of a region that has potential to give the right platform, inculcating maximum opportunities. The architectural style is derived from the Buddhist philosophy and Buddhist way of life. 9. The that need to be looked upon are in the remote areas of Bihar and the . Harmonizing the two under one architectural guise would help the project's economic sustainability. Identifying local skills of Bihar in the areas of construction, furniture making and handicraft. Identifying made, using traditional skills and its demand in present market. Identifying the of such skills in making products that have more demand in today's market at national and international levels. Identifying regions with potential to emerge out with its local skills and introducing in such regions that could be Centralization of small scale industries in the neighboring regions for two types of industries small-scale industries religious tourism industry Goals at Macro Level products scope satellite centers integrated with the main center at Rajgir. easy administration. Various regions of northern Bihar having the potential to develop as satellite-training centers for upgrading local Skills Buddhist Circuit offering good platforms for recognizing the local skills The dissertation is a research based design proposal for implementation of a feasible scheme that can bring about increased income opportunities in rural India .The design concepts are evolved by synthesis of issues generated in regional context on the basis of intense research and anticipation of demographic analysis. Population, trade, occupation, literacy, available human resources and alternate sources of energy are quantum factors in drawing the parameters of scheme and design requirements. The study also focuses on theory of market economy involving inflations, unemployment and production, along with the knowhow of existing small scale industries and existing market trends. Based on research and thorough study of various available government schemes as per state DraftAnnual Plan 2006( Bihar), a plan has been designed that is a model of entrepreneurship, free market concept and investment. The idea is to target on religious tourists coming from all over the world as primary consumers and also to provide them with quality services. The site taken for this plan has a strong Buddhist influence with the ancient University of Nalanda being the most significant landmark in the district. The form and space organizations in the proposal strongly emphasizes on interpretation of Buddhist philosophy and Buddhist way of life. AIM: The main aim is to bring about social, cultural and economic augmentation in Bihar by up gradation of traditional skills in terms of product innovation and income generation under the guise of a region that has potential to give the right platform, inculcating maximum opportunities. Rajgir, having the advantage of its significant location is appreciated for its high cultural values and has excellent scope for transportation by various means. The aim is also to mold the architectural vocabulary of site as such that it attracts religious tourists from all over the world providing them with best services and facilities. The site at Rajgir, Nalanda is extremely location specific and has the potential to facilitate good transport network via road, rail, river and air which would open the doors to trade at national and international levels. Almost centrally located in Bihar, it has a very strategic location for commencement of a plan that can bring income opportunities. It has a national highway that directly links this place with Orissa, Bengal, and other mega cities of India. Its close proximity to international airports at Patna and Gaya makes it most accessible. Mokama and Patna being close to this place can also open the river routes via Ganges for trade activities. 10.
