Thank you for visiting our website. Please take a few moments to read about the background of our research project.

Sprawl development in the United States is linked to a myriad of issues. What legacy are these development patterns leaving on the landscape? Landscape architects are often involved in the physical design of communities. This research project reports and reviews an adapted approach to community design and planning emphasizing clear communication of ecological design and planning issues in rural communities. Moreover, this approach relies on an interactive internet-based environment. For this experiment, we ask that you:

  1. Provide some basic demographic information;
  2. Browse the website while answering questions throughout; and
  3. Answer a few followup questions.
