Modern humans enjoy mobility levels that are unprecedented in history. In 1919 it would take a trip of 5 to 10 days to make the journey from London to New York city, a trip that today takes only 7 hours. While rapid transportation this has benefits, it also has enormous social, health and environmental costs. Harvey Miller discusses how resolving these costs is crucial if civilization is to survive the 21st century — a world that will see 10 billion people, most of whom will crowd into cities.

Harvey J. Miller is the Reusche Chair in Geographic Information Science, Director of the Center for Urban and Regional Analysis (CURA) and Professor of Geography at The Ohio State University. He answers questions of mobility, livability and sustainability by using GIS and other spatial analysis techniques. Mixing information science with geographic techniques Harvey explores social dimensions of transportation and the implications of accessibility for livable communities.

Suggested $3 donation. Use the code "getnerdy" if you want to zero out the donation.
