Spatial-Temporal Trends in Foreclosures, 2005-2016: Brooklyn Park, Minnesota

Published Date

This project was completed as part of the 2016-2017 Resilient Communities Project ( partnership with the City of Brooklyn Park. To gain a better understanding of where foreclosure relief efforts should be focused, Brooklyn Park needed to know where the majority of the foreclosures were occurring. Students in Dr. Ying Song’s Urban GIS and Analysis utilized Geographic Information Systems (GIS) to reveal spatial and temporal trends in the city’s foreclosure rates. While the students found that hot and cold-spots existed for foreclosures, they also determined that these patterns were cyclical over time – making these trends fluid. The students’ final report and presentation are available.


Report and presentation completed by students enrolled in GEOG 5564: Urban GIS and Analysis taught by Ying Song in spring 2017.
