Dear LOR user,

Thank you for being a big part of this community. To better support the initiatives around open educational resources in the state of Michigan, all resources on the Michigan Virtual Learning Object Repository (LOR) are being moved to #GoOpen Michigan (link is external) on September 30th, 2018. During the transition, our LOR will be moved to an archived state, not allowing new user registration or new content to be added. An email with more details was sent to registered users of the LOR in September. To make use of the great resources on the platform, we encourage you to create an account and add your own new resources to the #GoOpen Michigan platform (link is external).

Evaluate Locations for Mixed-Use Development

Description: 

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. While these are not the only factors that determine a good site, they are important criteria that will help the company refine its search.

Learning Targets: 
Enriching layers with on-demand attributes
Filtering layers with logical queries
Adding and calculating table fields
Deriving new locations through analysis
Creating time-based accessibility zones
