PLAN 637 Impact Analysis

Human and environmental impact analysis starts with a foundation of the social indicators of the quality of place, and methods of their measurement, including levels of service; it then explores analytical methods of development impacts, overall and distributive, on both human and non-human settlements: fiscal, economic, multi-modal transportation, environmental. A foundation in the science of ecology, briefly reviewed here and with readings, is beneficial.
