Colloquium: Urban and Transportation Strategies for Carbon-Neutral, Livable and Healthy Cities

March 16, 2021 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am
Introduction by Rob S. McConnell, M.D., Professor of Preventive Medicine and Spatial Sciences, Keck School of Medicine of USC The urban population is projected to reach 70% over the next 20 years. Suboptimal urban and transportation planning has led to an increase in morbidity and premature mortality due to rising levels of air pollution and noise, heat island effects and the lack of green space and physical activity. Recent health impact assessment studies provide new powerful quantitative evidence for the efficacy of urban and transportation interventions, policies and actions that can improve public health, make our cities more sustainable, and create multiple livability benefits. Instead of being the problem, cities could be planned and managed in ways that provide sustainable, livable and healthy habitats for a large human population.

Spring Colloquium: Maternal and Child Health in the Opioid Epidemic

USC Spatial Colloquium: David J. Bodenhamer, Ph.D.

October 15, 2019 @ 3:00 pm - 4:30 pm
This presentation explores what we have learned from our application of geospatial technologies to problems of interest to humanists. It also suggests an agenda for the future of this work, which increasingly will witness the convergence of technologies within new formats, such as virtual reality. One result is likely to be deep mapping, an innovative form of mapping with an emphasis on experiential knowledge that will open scholarship to non-expert audiences.
