The Land-Use Conflict Identification Strategy (LUCIS) is a goal-driven GIS model that provides a spatial representation of land use opportunities.  Generally, the process is structured through the identification of stakeholders (who you are planning for) and the goals they seek to achieve.  After a comprehensive analysis of physical, socio-economic and equity indicators, the resulting visualization illustrates the utility or to what degree each prefers a piece of land. Each individual stakeholder visual (map) is then combined into a single map that is used to identify conflict and help inform land use decisions.

LUCISplus:  This revised methodology and process of analyzing land use scenarios is known as LUCISplus. Although the name is updated, it maintains the necessity for individual creativity brought to the process by designers and planners but also more clearly integrates the role of community engagement with determining opportunities for future “little p” planning (grassroots and community led) and development.
