Abstract (300 words maximum)

For this presentation, we’ll be looking at finding the most suitable location for a new US embassy. The study area was done in Georgetown, Guyana. A US embassy, being a government building beyond our country’s borders, will require specific parameters to ensure its location is the most beneficial to our needs. For this project, The US wants to be close to other embassies the US is allied with, local government offices, as well as five-star hotels. On the other hand, it should be placed furthest away from shooting ranges, concert venues, floodplains, tsunami zones, high-risk areas, protected areas, and lastly, embassies of countries that the US is not friends with. In a perfect world, there will be multiple options as to where we could put our embassy, however, there won’t. Rather, the purpose of this project is to show where our best options are.
