Here is the final output of the earlier map I posted a couple of days ago. In brief, it is the combination of a variety of weighted layers that might factor in to the decision for developing urban farms in the greater Pittsburgh, PA area. This is the final product of a group project for FORS 565 at Penn State, which included Kevin Sparks, Yooinn Hong, and Neil Brown. Contact me if you re interested in more specifics regarding the workflow and resultant map.
I'm taking a GIS raster analysis course this fall which has been fun and also incredibly challenging. Here is an overlay of all the hydrological features and the state and local roads in Allegheny County, PA (buffered at 120m). This map isn't very practical right now, but I rather like the abstract image that is created by overlaying these transport networks.
