Introduction
Georgianna Strode currently works at the Florida Resources and Environmental Analysis Center (FREAC), Florida State University. Her interests include dasymetric population estimation, geovisualization, and exploring the potential of using the US National Grid (USNG) in a more prominent role within GIS.

Drinking and wastewater infrastructure consists of both public and private usage. On each property parcel, drinking water can be privately provided by a well or publicly provided through a municipality. Wastewater can be a private septic tank or a public sewer. Property parcels can use all private, all public, or a combination of public and private...

In the United States, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is the national agency that conducts and supports public health research and practice. Among the CDC’s many achievements is the development of a social vulnerability index (SVI) to aid planners and emergency responders when identifying vulnerable segments of the population,...
Article
Trumbo’s (1981) ideas on bivariate choropleth design have been underexplored and underutilized. He noted that effective map design (including color selection) is directly informed by the intended goal or use of the map (i.e., what questions might the map answer), and he identified three common spatial relationships that can be displayed by a bivari...

The Cadastral-based Expert Dasymetric System (CEDS) is an established and effective areal interpolation technique for mapping populations by disaggregating census data from coarse collection units to smaller property parcels. Frequently, the boundaries of census units (whether tract, block group or block level in the United States) and the boundari...

The terms ‘land use’ and ‘land cover’ typically describe categories that convey information about the landscape. Despite the major difference of land use implying some degree of anthropogenic disturbance, the two terms are commonly used interchangeably, especially when anthropogenic disturbance is ambiguous, say managed forestland or abandoned agri...
Article
Maps representing two variables sometimes use a single combined, or bivariate legend to improve clarity when comparing relationships, and to avoid less convenient side-by-side legends. However, conventional bivariate legends typically omit the underlying bivariate distributions. Using simple scatterplots statistical indicators of covariance can be...

We know that where a person lives has an impact on the person's health, but how much do we know about the criteria for assessing the health of a neighborhood? Socioeconomic status (SES), derived from census data, is an important factor in measuring the health status of neighborhoods. It is the contention of this paper that for a more accurate measu...

The ArcGIS Flex API from the Environmental Science Research Institute (ESRI) can produce rich, high-performing, engaging web mapping applications. It is usable out-of-the-box, with no programming needed. At the same time, there are significant programming resources available for those interested in customizing their maps. This discrepancy can be pu...
Chapter
Invasive species can be considered an ecological “time bomb” that contributes to a number of human and environmental problems, including reduced crop and livestock production and biodiversity loss. It is estimated that 5,000 acres of western lands become infested each day (North American Weed Management Association 2002). Westbrooks assesses the fi...

This report was commissioned to examine, analyze, and evaluate walkability measures in current academic literature, assess the data available, develop a suitable walkability metric for Florida, and design online maps to visualize Florida’s walkability using this devised formula. A broader wish for the Department of Health is that the results of this study are useful to local planners for designing more walkable communities with the long-term goal of increasing physical activity.

The terms ‘land use’ and ‘land cover’ typically describe categories that convey information about the landscape. Our paper addresses this spatially complex, and frequently ambiguous relationship, and posits that bivariate cartographic techniques are an ideal vehicle for representing both land use and land cover simultaneously. In more specific terms, we explore the use of nested symbology as ways to represent graphically land use and land cover, where land cover are circles nested with land use squares. We also investigate bivariate legends for representing statistical covariance as a means for visualizing the combinations of land use and cover. Lastly, we apply Sankey flow diagrams to further illustrate the complex, multifaceted relationships between land use and land cover. Our work is demonstrated on data representing land use and cover data for the US state of Florida.
