With the Raum+ method, an overview of the settlement area reserves is created without much effort and with expert support for a specific area either at the municipal, regional, state or cantonal level (Switzerland). When creating an overview of settlement area reserves, it is not just the quantity that matters, but also the quality of the areas. This means that information on the area reserves, such as for availability, blockade and ownership, are included, so later statements on the mobilizability of the respective area can be made.
Particularly in the present time with the trend of the migration of the population from rural areas an attractive living environment in the country, but also in the cities must be secured. The prerequisite for this is an orderly settlement development, which can be created with Raum + as the basis for settlement area monitoring and thus promotes a targeted and differentiated settlement area management.
