Abstract (300 words maximum)

The purpose of this research is for students to experience using GIS in a professional setting for a public organization. Copenhagen, Denmark hosts numerous embassies for other countries including the USA which was established nearly a century ago! After going through a couple of public opinions left by the locals (Google review), it would be nice if another location was established to assist both USA and Denmark’s bureaucratic needs. The population has surged compared to the numbers from when the building was established, which also changed the geospatial environment that was established when the building was opened. This research will analyze possible locations for USA embassies under new standards using GIS application software from Esri and publicly available data. The data is mainly sourced from a public GIS database in Copenhagen, and some data are created by the author using software from ESRI and Google. Methodology for this research will use geospatial tools and analysis from establishing buffers and clipping away features to weighted overlay analysis functions. Places of interest to take into account are public venues (such as theaters and stadiums), other embassies, land parcels, social/economic issues of the area, possible natural hazards, and drive/walk time of the parcel.

Possible Location for US Embassy in Copenhagen, Denmark

The purpose of this research is for students to experience using GIS in a professional setting for a public organization. Copenhagen, Denmark hosts numerous embassies for other countries including the USA which was established nearly a century ago! After going through a couple of public opinions left by the locals (Google review), it would be nice if another location was established to assist both USA and Denmark’s bureaucratic needs. The population has surged compared to the numbers from when the building was established, which also changed the geospatial environment that was established when the building was opened. This research will analyze possible locations for USA embassies under new standards using GIS application software from Esri and publicly available data. The data is mainly sourced from a public GIS database in Copenhagen, and some data are created by the author using software from ESRI and Google. Methodology for this research will use geospatial tools and analysis from establishing buffers and clipping away features to weighted overlay analysis functions. Places of interest to take into account are public venues (such as theaters and stadiums), other embassies, land parcels, social/economic issues of the area, possible natural hazards, and drive/walk time of the parcel.
