The Friends of South Commons requested CSU’s Columbus Community Geography Center assist in two projects. This project focused on two types of data related to South Commons. First, analyzing feedback from visitors to the Columbus Museum’s Common Grounds exhibition on the activities they wished to see on South Commons. Second, students collected baseline data to assess who is using South Commons for everyday active and passive use, what our team began to call “background.” From August to November 2017, the Columbus Community Geography Center’s (CCGC) urban geography team collected data to support community partners Friends of South Commons and the Columbus Museum.
