Jason Jurjevich, Population Research Center and Urban Studies and Planning, and Meg Merrick, Institute of Portland Metropolitan Studies, received a $49,635 National Science Foundation-funded subcontract grant for a project, titled "A User Study of Techniques for Geovisualizing Uncertainty in Survey Data for Urban Planning." The study is a collaborative effort with researchers at the University of New South Wales, University of Colorado at Boulder, and the University of Tennessee, and involves the design of a user-driven computer-based experiment with planning students and professionals in the Portland metropolitan area to assess the extent to which planners make use of uncertainty in geovisualized census data for policy-related decision making.
