Abstract (300 words maximum)

Buenos Aires is a vibrant city and the center of Argentinian politics and culture, making it an important point of international relations for the United States. Because of this, the US State department commissioned a study into a suitable location for a new US embassy in Buenos Aries, Argentina, to accommodate anticipated future growth. This project is not immediate, but rather looks towards a timeline of five or more years for implementation. Some considerations which were taken into account for the search included proximity to five-star hotels, local government offices, other foreign missions, public transportation, and health and safety. Environmental factors such as flood prone areas, as well as large gathering places like stadiums, were determined and excluded at a distance from the recommendations of new suitable locations. Spatial analysis of the data was done using ArcGIS Pro to produce the optimal location within the city of Buenos Aires, meeting the above-mentioned criteria. As a world leader It is important for the United States to continue to support its allies, while maintaining an adequate diplomatic presence helps to achieve this goal. A new Embassy will protect US interests in Argentina for the long term.
