Using GIS to Examine Exurban Density Patterns in Watauga County, North Carolina


Abstract:
Increasing population and land use change in rural areas are of significant importance to residents of western North Carolina. Previous studies have shown rapid growth in rural areas is associated with declines in environmental quality as well as increased home prices. This article provides an analysis of spatial density surfaces derived from land parcel data to measure ex-urban growth.
