In yesterday’s GIS Day map contest, sponsored by Davis library and Geography department, we have received 43 map submissions. Geography Major Sarah Followill receives the first place. Her map title is “Displaying Urbanization and Sprawl in Atlanta Metro Area Census Tracts “,which is an online interactive map. Link for this map – https://sarahfollowill.github.io/GEOG_456/gismapday/mapdaynew.html
These two interactive web-based geovisualizations work in conjunction with each other to show both vector and raster data of Atlanta’s urbanization and urban sprawl through the decade of 2010-2020. Viewers are able to interpret population density data changes in the context of physical urbanization.
