CURA has a long history of involvement in spatial analysis, and was a pioneer in the development of geographic information systems GIS technology and creation of the Minnesota Land Management Information Center. More recently, our emphasis has been on development of GIS applications for community organizations.
Census data showing population change in the state from to at the block and county level, and popluation distribution in the state and the Twin Cities metro area. Another major effort in the area of GIS is Minnesota 3D M3D , a collaborative effort with the Minnesota Department of Employment and Economic Development that brings together labor market, housing, and development information and analysis for the Twin Cities metro area into one easy-to-use web application for economic and community developers.
M3D has supported numerous community and neighborhood projects, including facilitating transit-oriented development along the Hiawatha Corridor, attracting workers to live closer to places of employment, connecting Twin Cities job centers to commutershed data, and analyzing the impact of the University on neighborhoods adjacent to the Twin Cities campus.
CURA programs that support projects in the area of geographic information systems include:. Recent reports City of Minnetonka Watershed Analysis. Minneapolis Neighborhoods and St. Paul Planning Districts. Maps for the Fingers. GIS in Dakota County. The contents of this book reflect many of the themes that were presented and discussed at the conference.

Although this is probably a positive sign for GIS development in Malaysia, it creates a user who is dependent on an application developer to come up with ideas or solution to urban planning problem. What no one knows is just how finite it is. If one constructs a list of topics central to a history course, then they would closely resemble those chosen here. In this context, new forms of urban models, Public Private Partnerships, tools and "drivers" — various decision makers who have to operate within complex urban areas — have to be considered. Completing the GIS concentration is officially recognized by statements on transcripts and a certificate.
