Track: Human Services
Authors: Timothy Cheney
Applied Sociologists are increasingly being called upon to provide not only solutions and recommendations for “clients” using more traditional theories and research methodologies, but to integrate more contemporary technologies such as ArcGIS in their research and presentations. In this paper, a number of projects that have utilized GIS mapping, techniques, and solutions to address specific problems of non-profit organizations in Northeast Florida will be presented.
