||Land Use Compatibility Study for Houston Region Airports
Land Use planning survey of 30 airports in the 13-county Gulf Coast planning region around Houston, Texas, using a Geographic Information System (GIS).
Quadrant Consultants conducted a survey at 30 airports in the 13-county Gulf Coast planning region. The Houston-Galveston Area Council is the metropolitan planning organization for the Houston area and received a grant for system planning from the Federal Aviation Administration in 1995. Under this grant, Quadrant conducted a land use survey at 30 of the 165 airports in the planning region to map existing land use within a 3-mile radius of the 30 airports, using a Geographic Information System (GIS), to help promote compatible land use planning at the airports to protect aviation facilities and passengers.
Quadrant conducted the surveys, provided data for the GIS and produced a report of existing land use around the airports. Quadrant identified land use incompatibility and recommended measures to ensure compatible land uses around the airports to aid future development.
