In this project, students evaluate areas in Gresham, Oregon, a city of about 100,000 people located east of Portland. They look for suitably-zoned areas where young adults are known to live and where renting is common. Since many of the prospective tenants will commute to Portland, students also look for areas that afford easy access to the city's light-rail system.

In these lessons, students play the role of a GIS specialist for a North Dakota advocacy group.

Students first download tabular (table-based) data on homelessness. Then, they map the data in ArcMap by joining it to state geography.
