Starting with the Laramide orogeny and continuing through the Cenozoic, the U.S. Cordilleran orogen is unusual for its width, nature of uplift, and style of tectonic and magmatic activity. We present teleseismic tomography evidence for a thickness of modified North America lithosphere ≥200 km beneath Colorado and >100 km beneath New Mexico. Existing(More)
Sharing of digital road map databases within and among organizations is dependent on translating user requirements to a data model that supports linear and non-linear location referencing systems. This paper examines issues of creating such a data model with the intent of sharing digital road map databases, and suggests implementation choices that can(More)
Means of capturing and encoding cartographic data for machine processing is a major issue in the design and the development of geographic information systems. The available and potential technology constitutes a bewildering array of choices for system designers from which to select formats and processing capabilities to meet user applications. Designers are(More)
In theory, proximity to a light rail (LRT) may have two different effects on residential property values. On the one hand, accessibility (proximity to the LRT stations) may increase property values. On the other hand, nuisance effects (proximity to the LRT line and stations) may decrease property values. Existing empirical studies are inconclusive, and(More)

In this paper we estimate the relationship between road capacity and vehicle miles of travel (VMT) from a sample of 12,000 respondents from 48 urban areas in the 1995 Nationwide Personal Transportation Survey (NPTS). Our approach seeks to account for the effects of residential location, employment location, and commute mode choice in estimating the effect(More)
This paper examines how the first decade of light rail transit (LRT) in the Portland region has affected auto ownership, mode share, density, and property values. The empirical analysis provides evidence that light rail has had some positive effect of rail on single-family property values, transit use, and slower growth of two-plus car households in the(More)
