Crowd sourcing neighborhood boundaries, stories, and descriptions. Making pretty maps.

This project is designed to collect boundaries and descriptions of neighborhoods and the like, and immediatley make them available for cartographic presentation and exploration.

Live Site

###Steps to Configure

  1. Create a CartoDB account. -add a table, easiest way would be to dowload the shapefile from the Live Site, add it to your cartoDB account, and empty it. That way you would get the field names and data types rolled right over.

  2. Change the configuration settings in the top bit of hoodscript.js.

  3. Update the API key and such in cartodbProxy.php. AND move this file somewhere above your web root.

  4. Update the include path in callProxy.php for wherever you put cartodbProxy.php on your server.

  5. Change googleanalytics.js to use your analytics code if you want, or remove the script that includes it from line 215 of index.html.

  6. Grab a beer. Don't know if you have a brewery nearby? Check here :)

###Thanks! ###These are the things in the toolbox.

  1. CartoDB
  2. Leaflet
  3. Bootstrap
  4. Leaflet Draw!
  5. Slim Scroll
  6. Whole project was inspired by Bostonography.
