Abstract (300 words maximum)

The embassy project that we are working on in Geog 4405 is a study that looks for suitable land for an United States embassy building to be placed in the assigned cities. I have been assigned to Vienna Austria, and have to find a plot of land that suits different criteria. Such criteria are proximity to other important sites like other embassies, government offices, stores, hospitals, and anything else of importance. Another criteria is finding the transportation time from the selected site whether it's walking, driving, or public transport. Then you have to assess its vulnerability to environmental factors such as flooding, seismic activity and so on. Socioeconomic factors are also important as well such as crime and poverty rates where your selected parcels of land are. After I have calculated all this I must perform a SWOT analysis to determine how viable the site is. The site chosen after the tests will be the best spot for the new embassy.
