There is a growing interest in the creative merger of geography and urban design. This is driven, in part, by a renewed openness to connecting design to social, environmental and other related goals via geospatial analysis. This paper explains how the design-geospatial connection is made and what it means for the achievement of social and other goals. Through five examples, the paper shows how the geospatial dimension-the analysis of what is where-can be an essential part of the urban design process. The five examples provide practical applications of how these linkages could be appropriately structured.
