Resilient Communities Project (RCP), University of Minnesota
This project was completed as part of a year-long partnership between the City of Ramsey and the University of Minnesota's Resilient Communities Project (http://www.rcp.umn.edu). The goal of this project was to assess the proximity of Ramsey's "Circle of Ramsey" greenway system to residential parcels in the city with the goal of improving accessibility and mobility for residents. Ramsey project lead Mark Riverblood collaborated with a team of students enrolled in Dr. Ying Song's GEOG 5564 course to analyze accessibility using geographic information systems (GIS) analysis and create maps highlighting areas of the city that are not well served by the existing greenway system, and that would benefit from extending the greenway system. A final student report from the project is available.
Report completed by students enrolled in GEOG 5564: Urban Geographic Information Science and Analysis, taught by Dr. Ying Song in spring 2018.
This project was supported by the Resilient Communities Project (RCP), a program at the University of Minnesota whose mission is to connect communities in Minnesota with U of MN faculty and students to advance community resilience through collaborative, course-based projects. RCP is a program of the Center for Urban and Regional Affairs (CURA). More information at http://www.rcp.umn.edu.
