Using Spatial Technology to Support Community Resilience for Landscape and Food Systems in the U.S. Virgin Islands

This case study will showcase the use of spatial data and technology to promote community, landscape, and food systems resilience in the U.S. Virgin Islands. We explore the inventory and analysis stage of landscape architecture using place-based and public-interest design processes and then investigate the strengths and challenges of primary data collection for landscape design and food systems development in a community with gaps in internet connectivity and limited existing digital data. We demonstrate the usefulness and intent for integrating primary data collection, mapping and community decision making for place-based planning. This process, and use of a mobile application tool (Fulcrum), is believed to be a transferable process for similar communities with minimal data resources and internet connectivity.
