Call For Papers: Cityscape Graphic Detail

Cityscape is a scholarly journal published three times per year by the U.S. Department of Housing & Urban Development's Office of Policy Development and Research (PD&R). Graphic Detail, a department of Cityscape, presents short articles using cartography and data visualization to tell the story. Through Graphic Detail, readers are exposed to short articles that rely on the visualization to discover spatial and temporal relationships for housing and urban studies-related research. Articles presented in Graphic Detail allow researchers to expand on their visualization techniques and connect the implications to policy.
