Revisiting an Old Project

The final project in our map design class has given me the opportunity to further research some previous work from last year's course 'Housing and Community Development.' Focusing on the southern Minneapolis neighborhood Nokomis East Neighborhoods of Morris Park, Keewaydin, Wenonah, and Minnehaha, my fellow students and I conducted on-site neighborhood housing analyses - later coming together and compiling a detailed housing report on each individual neighborhood.


For my current class, I am making several maps of the neighborhood's housing characteristics from available GIS data. While I'm still in the process of finalizing the final poster and map designs, it's been interesting so far to see certain trends within the neighborhood groups when comparing parcel data. The final poster is due tomorrow so I better get back to work!
