A Geodesignhub plugin to compute financial analysis and asset qualities for a diagram and design synthesis

Asset and Financial Investment Analysis Library

Table of Contents


This plugin enables comprehensive financial and asset analysis for Geodesignhub projects. It uses the Geodesignhub API to download data from your project and provide a series of controls to analyze and set potential uses of this asset, conduct financial Analysis and finally conduct a investment summary.

Financial Analysis

This module of the plugin deals with Financial Information associated with the diagram. It is focused on the capital investment associated with the diagram.

You can enter the following parameters for a project:

Asset Analysis

Using this part of the plugin, you can set specific characteristics of a diagram based on the intended use. Details such as people housed, total units and number of floors for a example for a residential diagram, as shown below.

In addition you can set a representative image and compute targetted population density. There are other asset types as well such as Tourism, Office, Retail etc. available as well. As we progress, we will continue to add additional asset classes.

After having set the asset class and the intended use of the diagram, this module can then compute the services requried for that asset to maintain

Investment Analysis Library

This is the third module of the plugin. Once you have set the asset details and the financial analysis set for a diagram, this module summarizes them and conducts builds a series of visualizations.

This module analyzes the location of the diagram over the boundary uploaded into Geodesignhub. A boundary is a simple polygon file that can be really any boundary: social, political, economic or administrative. Once the boundary is uploaded, the plugin computes the asset details over that boundary. This is useful to visualize how money flows in the design over time and space.

Boundary Analysis

Investment over time per boundary, once the capital investment is set, you can then compute how the investment flows over different boundaries. Below is a chorpleth intensity map of investments demonstrating the across various boundaries. interface Also as a simple chart. interface

Once intervention strategy is finalized, all the asset details “rolled up” in one list with all the totals. interface

Finally the plugin splits the allocations proportionally across different boundaries so you can see how the distribution of jobs, visitors, population and services are split across the different boundaries. interface


Adding the plugin

The plugin can be added to your project using the Administration panel
