Advanced Application of the Transect in Form-Based Coding


Most of the best Form-Based Codes being produced today use the Transect as a framework, demonstrating its power as a regulatory system and lexicon. Many of these applications aren’t “out of the box,” but thoughtful adaptations. Some simply modify the names of Transect zones to make them more locally calibrated, while others have added zones or subsets to meet specific project requirements.
