Urban Growth and Predictions of Growth


Urban Growth and Predictions of Growth Dr. Roger White, a geography professor at Memorial University in St. John's, Newfoundland, has created a unique way to predict, and modify, growth in urban regions. His computer models can help city planners understand development patterns in Mecklenburg County and beyond. With open land disappearing rapidly in our county, research such as Dr. White's is increasingly important for efforts to understand development, and to possibly make it more efficient and more ethical.
