    Description

    A computer-based procedure for geographically identifying rating, and ranking topoclimatic characteristics is described. The influences of topography, land use, and soils are considered and combined into a single composite topoclimate developmental suitability map drawn by a Cal Comp plotter. By allocating development to the most suitable topoclimate areas, the long-term energy costs of maintaining human health and comfort could be minimized.
