summary The pairing of CAD and GIS data creates an opportunity to connect an architectural design process more immediately with its environmental constraints. Yet the GIS data may be too overwhelmingly complex to be fully used in CAD without computer-assisted methods of highlighting relevant information. This paper reports on the implementation of an integrated environment for three-dimensional design geometrical modeling and obtaining environmental impact feedback. The project focused on enhancements to the data exchange and on the development of a related set of tools. While the technologies of CAD and GIS may rely on separate representational models,in combination they can provide a more complete view of the built and natural environment. The challenge in integration is that of bridging analytical methods and database formats used in the two technologies. Our approach is rooted in part in constraint based design methods well established in CAD (e.g., Sketchpad, Generative Components, CATIA). Within such CAD systems geometrical transformations may be intentionally constrained to help enforce some previously made design decisions. Although this current implementation modestly relates to geometrical constraints, the use of probabilistic risk values is more central to its methodology.
