Abstract:
Local boundary changes can be realized in five different manners: annexation, incorporation, merger/consolidation, secessions, and special district formations. To understand the complexities of these changes and effects on taxes, government representation, and school districting the authors analyzed boundary shifts within Brunswick County from between 1990-2010. Brunswick County is the subject of this study because of its rapid population increase and frequency of local boundary changes during this period.

Abstract:
Sea Breeze was a resort beach near Wilmington specifically for African American between the 1920s and 1970s.

Abstract:
With the exceptional price increases and costs associated with conventional forms of energy, one must seriously consider the advantages of integrating alternative forms of energy with those already in existence. Energy may come from different sources and their predominance within geographic regions relies on a variety of physical factors and ancillary issues required to implement these practices. Wind has proven to be an inexpensive alternative energy source in the United States. This article uses Geographic Information Systems to study the feasibility of using wind as a viable energy source in North Carolina.

Abstract:
Prolonged water deficit periods have caused many environmental, social, and economic problems in North Carolina and across the southeast. In order to protect water resources and the communities they support, it is essential to understand complex interactions that lead to water shortages. Climatological drought is monitored through precipitation, stream flow, and soil moisture; data from Watauga County has been analyzed to help in understanding this complex relationship.

Abstract:
The relevance of place characteristics of both sending and receiving regions on the socio-economic success of immigrants constitutes an under examined yet potentially highly important factor explaining differential adjustment outcomes of groups from a similar geographic region. This article looks at major Southeast Asian refugee groups in North Carolina to compare them with each other in the same state and with success of the same groups in other states.

Abstract:
North Carolina Central University and 17 other education institutions across the state participate in the Esri Site License Program (SLP). The geospatial software package is a research aid for students from many disciplines. Rising licensing costs are pressuring some of these participating institutions to drop the Esri SLP but the authors offer an argument justifying the expense.

Although several coastal states have created inventories of their bays, North Carolina is only beginning a preliminary inventory of primary characteristics for classifying depression wetlands as bays using cartographic modeling and geographic information systems. Such systems allows for effective study of the region.

Abstract:
Tourism is a major economic driver for North Carolina. Despite its fundamental influence on tourism, there is limited understanding of the relationship of climate and weather patterns with day-to-day business operations or long-term economic and environmental sustainability. This article presents a climate-tourism index to measure and evaluate climate as a resource for tourism businesses in 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.

Abstract:
Roanoke Inlet closed between 1792 and 1798, thus depriving the northeastern North Carolina port towns of an outlet to the Atlantic. In 1820, Hamilton Fulton, civil engineer to the State of North Carolina, devised a plan for reopening the inlet. The project was never undertaken; however, reports of the area provided a detailed account of the dramatic geographic changes that took place in after the Roanoke Inlet closed.
