Abstract (300 words maximum)

There are many capitals in the world that still do not contain US embassies. This semester, our Advanced GIS (Geographic Information Systems) class was given the task, by the United States Bureau of Overseas Building Operations, to put together maps to help solve this issue. We were assigned Reykjavik, Iceland and Vilnius, Lithuania. This is a comprehensive analysis on our findings of the best locations for this embassy. There were many factors considered, such as five-star hotels, shooting ranges, other government buildings, etc. With all of these in mind, the locations depicted in our maps and applications are some of the best, and most centrally located, in the cities.
