This purpose of this paper is twofold: First, to introduce the concept of geodesign, what it means, and some of its implications, particularly for those working with geospatial data; and Second, to encourage the reader to play an active role in the development and expansion of this nascent field. The paper addresses the context for geodesign, the history of geodesign, the definition of geodesign, the importance of geodesign, the nature of design, managing complexity, the technology of digital geodesign, and creating the future.

Introduction
This purpose o this paper is twoold: First, to introduce the concept o 
geode-sign
, what it means, and some o its implications, particularly or those workingwith geospatial data; and Second, to encourage the reader to play an active rolein the development and expansion o this nascent eld.The paper will address the ollowing topics:
•
The context or geodesign
•
The history o geodesign
•
Dening geodesign
•
The importance o geodesign
•
The nature o design
•
Managing complexity
•
The technology o digital geodesign
•
Creating the utureAdditional inormation regarding the subject o geodesign, including the geode-sign process, geodesign technology, and various geodesign case studies, isreerenced at the end o this paper.

The Context or Geodesign
Every organization, large or small, public or private, does three things: it gets andmanages inormation (data), analyzes or assesses that inormation with respect tosome purpose (analysis), and (based on that inormation and those assessments)creates or re-creates goods and/or services (design). It is, in act, the creation orre-creation o goods and/or services that gives most organizations their reasonor being.By and large, geographic inormation system (GIS) technology, as it’s knowntoday, serves organizations quite well with respect to the need to acquire andmanage geospatial inormation. GIS also oers organizations a wide rangeo geoprocessing unctions or analyzing geospatial inormation. While this isbeginning to change, present-day GIS still oers little unctionality with respectto an organization’s need to create and/or re-create goods and services, that is,its need to do design … to do geodesign.Assuming the average organization spends a third o its operational resourceson each o these three segments (data, analysis, and design), a GIS technologycompany (like Esri) could increase the organization’s revenue by 50 percent, with-out adding any new customers, by simply expanding its products and services tosupport customers’ activities related to design.
Every organization doesthree things: it gets andmanages information (data),analyzes or assesses thatinformation with respect tosome purpose (analysis), and(based on that information andthose assessments) createsor re-creates goods and/orservices (design).
