Posted on Posted in GIS_Software, Human Geography

The Spatial Information Design Lab at Columbia University has been working with the Justice Mapping Center to map the phenomenon of “million dollar blocks” in US cities. These are US Census Blocks where the cost of incarcerating the residents of that block who are in prison is $1 million or more. The aim of the project is use mapping and spatial analysis to try to understand the phenomenon and offer insight that can be applied to real life policy initiatives.
