New Map: All the Gov't Owned Property in Philadelphia
#1
The entire kitchen sink (schools, libraries, vacant lots, federal stuff, state stuff... as much stuff as I could name off that belongs to a gov't agency). I've probably left off a thousand or so properties because they're held in fully-gov't-owned non-profits like the Logan Assistance Corp.

Holy crap. Did you put that together?

Yep. The power of 32-core CPU computers.

Bonus: here's another one I just finished that shows where all the vacant lots are and how they're owned.

Zooming in and clicking shows you detail (like taxes).

It's just funny how different people can be.


One guy makes detailed maps that break down the city into... THAT.


and another guy looks at it and says Shrug

Very neat.

But I would find it useful if the info in the hover over told me what that building was.

Still, well done.

Oh yeah...would also be cool if you could add in the map of the open private and public spaces into it, along with privately owned houses/property as well.

And give us the option to toggle them on or off so we can look at what we want to look at.

But again, very nice.

Very cool. What's the criteria for a vacant lot? There's one that's been empty for about 3 decades next to the building I work in but it didn't show up on the map. It's basically the western half of the 1900 block of Market St.
Ammunition, it's the new lead bullion. Buy it cheap and stack it deep.

The Office of Property Assessment has to actually describe it as vacant. If it's a surface parking lot, parklet or they classified it as commercial in the description I didn't detect it.

OPA doesn't really code actual land use the way that it would make it easy to get 100% accuracy.

I don't suffer from insanity.
I enjoy every minute of it.

Do roads have deeds?
