If you are a Berkeley undergrad and GIS enthusiast interested in learning new GIS skills and contributing to an important project, consider applying for our Fall 2020 SPUR research project. The Kellylab will mentor one SPUR student on a project with Mapping Black California (MBC) to map the proportion of municipal budgets that fund police departments in municipalities across California.
This project will: 1) gather information from websites of several major cities or municipalities in California; 2) visualize results on a map of California; and 3) create a Story Map presentation showcasing the work.
It will be fun, rewarding, and important work!
