Nathaniel Henry will talk about Mapping 15-minute neighborhoods within Seattle. Nat is a geographer and public health researcher who uses spatial analysis to illuminate health inequalities. As a member of the Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation (IHME) at the University of Washington, he serves as a research lead for international mapping studies of maternal and child health. His current work is split between (1) understanding the spatial determinants of health outcomes within cities, and (2) developing open-source software for spatial statistical modeling.

We will have a dicussion about coming up with new topics for our meetings in the Fall and about preparing a workshop-style or maptime-style meeting about cartography.

Anyone is invited to share (their own or news about any interesting) small or large geospatial projects. As always any geo-questions are encouraged and will gladly be discussed within the group.
