Geography undergraduates Kory Van Dyke, Lauren Thompson, and Nick Sun’s research on homeless encampments has been featured in the latest issue of Real Change. As a team in GIS Workshop, the students mapped out complaints concerning encampments in Seattle. They discovered that the city is more likely to get complaints about an encampment when it is within 150 feet from high-traffic areas and complaints more likely happen in particular neighborhoods like South Lake Union and Wallingford.
