Great new tool for the city

This is about a mapping tool developed with no public money, which can be used by the city and by neighborhood groups to get all kinds of info about properties in the city. It sounds like it could be a really useful thing.

Here is a quote from the article:

The equivalent of 40 encyclopedic tomes of public record from more than 20 sources, the Web-based CIS is a one-stop shop that will cut research from months or years to days or even hours and give planners a long view of the lay of the land. For example, you can see a map that shows all vacant buildings in the city, a map that shows all tax-delinquent properties in the city, and then a color-coded overlay to let you see how the two correspond to each other.

I never heard about this before, but apparently it has been years in the making. Now it is almost ready to roll out!
