Title: Crest Drive Community Mapping Project - Community Atlas 1.0
Author: Schlossberg, Marc; Heater, Heather; Bargen, Sara; Rolniak, David
Abstract: This Atlas contains a series of maps resulting froma community-based mapping project between the University of Oregon and the Crest Drive Citizens Association in Eugene, OR. In the Fall, 2006 academic term, students taking the class “PPPM 4/536: Applied Geographic Information Systems (GIS) and Social Planning” worked with residents of the Crest Drive Neighborhood to collect data in the neighborhood of interest to residents. The planning for this project began about four months prior to the term when the Chair of the neighborhood association, Kathy Saranpa, and I, the instructor of the course, met to brainstorm potential project ideas. Over the course of those four months, we eventually decided to conduct a walkability analysis of some central streets between Crest Drive Elementary School and Wayne Morse Ranch. Data was collected using ArcPad GIS with teams of residents and students doing the data collection. In addition to maps showing this data, this final Atlas also includes maps of the neighborhood using other city and census data.
