Status:

A reminder on an interesting, interdisciplinary talk brought to you
by the Department of Planning, Public Policy, and Management..

Dr. Earl Bossard of San Jose State University will speak Thursday
(tomorrow) on "Envisioning Neighborhoods with GIS" from 9-11am at
231 Lawrence Hall. A flyer is posted on the web at:
http://www.uoregon.edu/~schlossb/bossard.pdf and is re-printed
below. This talk will be taking place during the Advanced GIS class,
but is open to all with an interest in neighborhoods, quality of
life, transit-oriented development, GIS, and all the associated
areas of interests.

For those interested, Dr. Bossard will be available for idea
exchange over lunch around noon on Thursday, Oct. 4 in the fish bowl

Envisioning Neighborhoods with GIS

A Public Lecture by:

Dr. Earl Bossard
San Jose State University

October 4, 2001

9:00 - 11:00 am,
231 Lawrence Hall


Envisioning Neighborhoods (EN) is an innovative GIS-based method
used to understand neighborhood composition in general, and more
specifically to determine, analyze, and promote potential
transit-oriented development (TOD) sites. Inspired by Yale Professor
Edward Tufte's 1990 text, Envisioning Information, Envisioning
Neighborhoods enables urban analysts to analyze and understand small
areas by constructing small multiple replicates of maps and graphs
based on census data and boundaries, supplemented by street and
highway maps, photographs, and non-census data.

Geographical Information Systems (GIS) map analysis techniques are
used to estimate population densities in rings around transit stops,
as well as densities of potential riders, workers, and customers in
the vicinity of potential TOD centers. Understanding site potential
is enhanced by multiple digital images of block fronts linked to
digital video pans to see the relationship of structures, transit
facilities and developable sites.

Comparisons over space, scale, and time are used. Page views display
four maps, four variables, six frequency classifications, and four
relative ranking classifications in a standardized way. Data
screening techniques are designed to facilitate the use of year 2000
census data as it is released.


This talk is open to the public and should appeal to anyone with an
interest in neighborhoods, urban planning, quality of life, or GIS.
