Moderate projections indicate that by 2070, Florida’s population will reach approximately 33.7 million residents, close to 15 million more than in 2010.  What happens if Florida continues to develop as it has in the past, with development sprawling into rural and agricultural lands?  What will our state look like if we chose more compact development patterns closer to existing development?  the University of Florida’s GeoPlan Center, the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services and 1000 Friends of Florida have partnered on developing a series of GIS-based state and regional maps to explore these issues.  Join representatives of these three groups for an intriguing look into the future.
