Shape Planning (SHAPe) is a web-based tool developed by Logan Simpson Design planners and GIS specialists to enable collections of jurisdictions to create unified, regional land use maps. SHAPe allows systematic and transparent translation of different zoning designations into a comprehensive regional dataset to show relationships between jurisdiction plans and the regional development vision. When employment and dwelling unit density targets are supplied with the jurisdiction's land use or zoning, SHAPe provides the base data for demand distribution forecasts for transportation networks, power grids, amenities and public services placement, and any other population driven service.

Put simply, the SHAPe enables individual jurisdictions to upload their land use/zoning data, answer some simple questions about its classes and characteristics, and have that data translated into a single, seamless dataset for their region. This seamless dataset can then be used to model growth, employment trends, and transportation far more powerfully.
