Quadrant Consultants Inc logo Lake Houston Watershed Land Use Management Study

 

Population and land use study of the Lake Houston Watershed. Population and land use were developed for all census tracts in the watershed for 1990 and projected over 50 years in ten-year increments.

 

Quadrant Consultants conducted a comprehensive study of population and land use for the Lake Houston Watershed, which encompasses an area of over 2,700 square miles (an area larger than the state of Rhode Island) and extends into seven counties. Population and land use estimates were developed for all census tracts in the watershed for 1990 and projected over 50 years in ten-year increments. Quadrant developed population and land use projections for the entire watershed and produced forecast land use maps using 38 land use categories. The six land use maps were then digitized and input into an Arc/INFO Geographic Information System.
