Here we have highlighted some of the projects that are technically supported by GAL. Most are coordinated with the ND community to meet their research goals using geospatial techniques. Browse the links to the left to learn more about these exciting projects.


Developing an Index of Physical Neighborhood Quality Related to Children's Mental Health and Physiological Stress 

  • Project Period: 2014-2015
  • GIS Lead: Milan Budhathoki and Rumana Reaz Arifin
  • Project Lead: Kim Rollings
  • Department: School of Architecture 

This project is lead by Professor Kim Rollings and her Co-PIs. Children’s mental health data, other relevant data (example; housing, income, street, environmental pollution, land use etc.) collected by PI’s team will be forwarded to GIS Specialist. GIS data will be standardized and GIS analysis will be performed based on GIS workflow provided by PIs, and also additional analysis as required. Field survey data in this study are sensitive, so the GAL will abide with the human sensitive research ethics set by IRB (Institutional Review Board). Therefore, the GAL will secularly handle data to preserve sensitive information. For more information contact Kim Rollings at This email address is being protected from spambots.
