Social & Environmental Sustainability

I just went to a great ESRI session on social & environmental sustainability where researchers in areas as diverse as homelessness and toxic waste, asked the age old question of cause and effect. The interesting part was that they sought to gain depth of knowledge using GIS. As the last speaker, Dr. bossard from San Jose said about his upcoming book, Envisioning Neighborhoods, deeper understanding of places leads to wisdom. Wisdom can add to quality of life.
