The Scientific Seminar "GIS Tools for the Study of Transport Accessibility in Urban Landscapes on the Example of Nizhny Novgorod"
On December 15, 2022, the final seminar of the series "Current approaches and methods in landscape and ecological research" was held.
The senior researcher of the laboratory Natalia Shartova, interns researchers Polina Koksharova and Alexander Kostyuk told that the urban environment plays an important role in shaping the health and lifestyle of the population. Urban landscapes can contribute to the manifestation of physical activity of a person.
