Abstract (300 words maximum)

For my final project, I will be determining the best spot in Douala, Cameroon to place a USA embassy. I will be using ArcGIS Pro for this project and will gather as much data as I can from the internet and use the Living Atlas in ArcGIS Pro. I will be choosing a spot that has quick access via driving or walking or public transportation, far away from anything that could make the place vulnerable to anything dangerous. I will be looking at places that will avoid natural disasters in Douala such as earthquakes, flooding, and hurricanes. I will also look into finding hospitals that would be close to the embassy in case there are any emergencies that could take place. I will also be looking at airports too so there is quick access to and from the embassy and airport. I will also look at restaurants to see for embassy workers to go out and get some breakfast, lunch, and dinner. I will use the data I collect to run multiple different spatial analyses to determine the best spot for this embassy. I hope I can find the sweet spot in Douala, Cameroon for this embassy.
