NACIS 39th Annual Meeting: Will Creasy (Urban3 Analyst)

  • Hotel Murano 1320 Broadway Tacoma, WA, 98402 United States (map)

Our analyst Will Creasy will be presenting a session at the North American Cartographic Society Annual conference. His topic is ‘3D Maps and Money: How to Promote Equity, Environmentalism, and Urbanism Without Mentioning Equity, Environmentalism, or Urbanism’:

Abstract: Municipal taxation is a complex and often mystifying process. Most people want their hometown to be stronger, more equitable, and more environmentally sustainable. Unfortunately, the vast majority of this country is engaged in economically unsound car dependent development. Can we convince America to change its ways before its overextended infrastructure collapses under its own weight? At Urban3 we believe we can. Using a combination of focused cartography, behavioral psychology, and engaging storytelling we work to help people understand the situation for themselves. Let us share the lessons we've learned in more than 150 cities, towns, and villages with you.
