Ensuring Sustained Utility

In order for the finished product to have practical value, the model should be i) hosted in a location convenient and conducive to land use planning, ii) hosted in a place free from environmental elements (rain, wind, salt water, etc), iii) visible by community/state planning agencies, iv) revisited on a regular basis to incorporate spatial information into ongoing planning exercises

- A hosting space/agency free from environmental elements

- Enthusiasm for use by state and community planning groups

If a case can be purchased/provided, covering the model will extend its shelf life by years.
