Applied GIS Informs Neighborhood Development

What if you could design your neighborhood from scratch? For example, the stop light at a major intersection where kids on your block cross should be moved in order to prevent fatalities? You've noticed stray animals and urban wildlife have taken a fancy to a particular route during off hours to get to your neighborhood park? With the use of applied research scientists have developed ways which implement GIS technology into mapping systems which bring a detailed look into how neighborhood planning can maximize resources, garner support from potential impact investors, creating the perfect environment for neighborhoods to thrive, GIS is the thing, the details. h/t Cornell
