When people build things, they literally put down their roots in the land. They create not only the real property assets in the economy, but also the substance of the world's changing human geography. The relationship between real property value and geography is explored in this 1994 study of the twenty-three counties in the commuter areas of the Twin Cities, Rochester, and St. Cloud. The study presents a regional profile of property values, shows how legacy and location have shaped variations in property values, and explores the changing value of property over time and how assessors' records, if they are incorporated into geographic information systems, could provide a national system for monitoring land and value. A summary of this study appears in the March 1994 CURA Reporter.
