Mary Pattison, my fiancée, is currently taking an urban planning course for her master’s degree in GIS. For her final project, she collected a list of grocery stores in Minneapolis and used a Euclidean distance analysis to calculate minimum walking distance of any point in Minneapolis to a grocery store.
