Objective 1.1, which makes up about 3% of the exam, covers analyzing a project site for environmental, social, and cultural conditions. You'll learn to identify opportunities for alternative energy resources as well as gain an understanding of microclimates and natural elements through the use of tools such as the sun path diagram. A classic question for this objective might provide you with a site's zoning information and ask you to drag and place the elements into their appropriate location in order to comply with the zoning ordinance.
