Navigating Housing with Geospatial Tools
This is a book lauch by two Hunter College authors (Deborah Rojas De Leon and Jochen Albrecht) and Laxmi Ramasubramanian from San José.
GIS and Housing: Principles and Practices explores the complexities of the present-day housing crisis in the United States and advocates for denser housing alternatives to address affordability, supply shortages, and homelessness. The book explains how Geographic Information Science (GIS) can enhance our understanding of complex housing issues, serving as a pragmatic framework to connect policymakers and practitioners. The authors, with backgrounds in architectural design, urban planning, civic engagement, and GIS, invite readers to view housing in the context of their lived experiences, by exploring the challenges facing urban, suburban and rural neighborhoods in different US regions through myriad examples.

This event will be held online via Zoom—the meeting link is forthcoming.
