Effective facilitation of a community's urban development and geographic expansion in today's technology-based world relies on accurate GIS data coupled with common zoning guidelines, both of which are shared by all departments of a local government. Castle Rock, Colorado, is one of the fastest growing communities in the United States, and as of 2006 had no common, comprehensive, or up-to-date resource for use in future planning strategies. The geodatabase and land use map created by this project are valuable tools accessible by all governmental departments within the Town of Castle Rock. They are heavily used for ensuring proper infrastructure development, and eliminating individual department's attribute data discrepancies. The result is a streamlined process for efficient, accurate project completion.
