Future Goals:

  • Add more layers
  • Make vacancy data more clear (it currently seems like whole buildings are vacant that aren't)
  • Create separate maps for different audiences
  • Add to South Downtown website
  • Think about dream data and what we could gather

Some possible ways to narrow the map for different audiences

  • Real estate developers
  • Advocacy (city planning, decision-makers, etc.)
  • Visitors
  • Residents

Potential Additions:

  • Population density and demographics
  • Schools
  • Street closures
  • Parking (lots, decks, street)
  • Use parcel layer to shade parcels based on data (use, ownership, etc.)
  • Historical uses (esp. for vacancies)
  • More transit
    • Bus stops (MARTA and regional) and/or routes
    • Greyhound
    • Bike lanes & routes
    • Streetcar
    • Map usage
  • Infrastructure (plumbing, electrical, fiber)
  • Social services
  • Economic indicators
  • Organizations and other social events, etc.
  • Government use
  • Security (GSU police, Fulton county police & sheriff, APD, gov't building security)
  • Proximity to stuff outside South Downtown
  • Ambassadors
  • Future plans (building permits; future land use map)
  • Events
  • Previous property sales/prices
  • Visitors to the area
  • More landmarks
  • Filming locations
  • Retail
  • Integrating other CodeAcross groups' efforts: storytelling, branding, participatory
