Mark's presentation will demonstrate how geographical information systems (GIS) and the Census can be used to identify areas within a city or county that have access to senior centers and farmers' markets. The spatial relationship between where older adults are located in comparison to these services can be highlighted. Additionally, the pedestrian and public transportation conditions around these facilities are identified and explored to determine their active transportation accessibility.
Mark Person is a second year Masters of Urban and Regional Planning student focusing on transportation. Within the field of transportation, Mr. Person is interested in older adults and active transportation.
