Welcome to my new website. I’ve had lots of great ideas about the best way to present my methods to the interested public, but I’ve finally settled on this web site. It’s going to provide a great way to exchange ideas with my readers.
I’ll attempt to describe my methodology as I go along, and hope you’ll give me your ideas, too.
As might be expected, neighborhoods vary as widely as those that comprise them. Consequently there are various approaches which will be needed during our search. Not only do I depend upon the data so carefully compiled by The U.S. Census Bureau, I have also reaped untold benefits from using the tools available via the Internet. With the advent of modern mapping tools available on the web, complete with satellite and aerial photography, visiting a distant neighborhood has become as easy as sitting down in front of my computer screen. I heavily use both Google Earth and Microsoft Live Maps to get a close-up look at unfamiliar neighborhoods. Only a few years ago I would have never dreamed of having these types of tools available for my research.
Follow along as I delve the depths of the American Landscape!
Thanks for visiting, and enjoy your stay!
