Using GIS, and the available CAGIS data, I created several map analyses for the neighborhood business district in Hyde Park. Those analyses include; street classification, figure-ground, and land use.

|Neighborhood Proposal

Toni Strauch

Proposed Bicycle Paths The Wasson Way Bike Path will go 6.5 miles from Xavier University to the Little Miami Bike Trail in Newtown. It will give 120,000 people, living within one mile of the trail, access to a network of over 100 miles of bike and pedestrian trails. By connecting several bike paths to Wasson Way, residents and shoppers will be more easily throughout the neighborhood without relying on motor vehicles.
