The UFL specializes in the spatial analysis of the built environment using micro-scale data in Geographic Information Systems. This urban form research addresses such topics as land monitoring, neighborhood and street design, non-motorized transportation, physical activity, and access to food environments.

Dr. Moudon’s published works include Built for Change: Neighborhood Architecture in San Francisco (MIT Press 1986), Public Streets for Public Use (Columbia University Press 1991), and Monitoring Land Supply with Geographic Information Systems (with M. Hubner, John Wiley & Sons, 2000). She also published several monographs, such as Master-Planned Communities: Shaping Exurbs in the 1990 (with B. Wiseman and K.J. Kim, distributed by the APA Bookstore, 1992) and Urban Design: Reshaping Our Cities (with W. Attoe, University of Washington, College of Architecture and Urban Planning, 1995).
