I am a MSc candidate at the University of Cape Town (Department of Geomatics). I currently hold a MSc Studentship with the Built Environment Unit of the CSIR (Spatial Planning and Systems competency area: Urban and Regional Planning research group). My interest is GIS and its application as a tool in facilitating strategic planning for urban areas. The spatial realities of the distribution of supply and demand of services are changing continuously and these calls for regular and logical accessibility measures and innovative approaches to evaluate and improve the performance of service delivery systems. My MSc research project focuses on the relevance of GIS-based accessibility analysis to determine public primary health care demand in low income areas. The study is an attempt to develop an analysis approach that will assist in calculating the probability variance of rational choice verses actual choice.
