The Community, Health, and Resources Management (CHARM) is an interactive, GIS-based workshop tool for the public and stakeholders. Using a low-cost, interactive table-top map interface, people can now collaborate to create hypothetical development scenarios for their communities. With access to over a dozen development paints and maps, participants can custom create planning scenarios and view real-time feedback. Where should growth be encouraged and where should it be avoided? How many homes are we putting in harm’s way? What do we want to conserve for future generations? CHARM helps communities see how planning decisions made today will impact tomorrow’s community.
