Udon Thani Thailand Green Infrastructure Site Suitability

I spent almost a year in Thailand, in the cities of Udon Thani in the northeast and the capital Bangkok. We were preparing a shared vision planning exercise for water resources infrastructure in the northern city of Udon Thani. That is, we were preparing a serious gaming session with a hydroeconomic model that was built with a frontend GUI allowing stakeholders to make informed but democratic decisions. Working with landscape architects, we designed flood risk management infrastructure. In order to do so, with a lack of land use data, I used a random forest tree ensemble and LANDSAT imagery to create a land use and land classification map which when paired with a flood model provided a site suitability analysis for the placement of green infrastructure.
