Commuting during the Great Recession – A presentation at the Transportation Research Board meeting 2013

With the program now posted, here is a link to our new paper which will be presented at the Transportation Research Board  (TRB) Annual Meeting (Washington, DC) in January of 2013. Coauthored with FSU graduate student Daniel Schleith, this paper reports on a spatial and temporal analysis of commuting patterns using a new U.S. Census data source. The study period covers the years of the Great Recession and explores transportation trends during the economic downturn.

(Brief) report from GIScience 2012

Just now getting the chance to report on my trip to Columbus, OH for GIScience 2012 two weeks ago.  It was a very busy event, as I was a part of three papers scheduled on the program. It was also nice visiting Columbus after having lived there about 10 years ago, and seeing how much it had changed.  Overall, a great conference (e.g., we were well fed!) and looking forward to future meetings.
