Edifice Maps

Simple website showcasing maps of Chicago's built environment, made with building data from Edifice db.

We designed the maps using TileMill for the Reinventing Chicago Hackathon, October 6-8 2012 in Chicago.

We borrowed the site template and map styles from the wonderful folks at Mapbox..

Our tilemill projects are in maps/:

Buildings areas

building_areas/

Every building in Chicago, colored by its footprint area.

addresses.sql Flat PostgreSQL data dump of building IDs (bldg_gid) with their address.

data/

Due to earlier problems with a dump/reload of PostGIS database we had to use flat CSV files. This can be restored into PostGIS with:

CREATE TABLE buildings_tilemill (bldg_gid smallint, the_geom geometry, lat double precision, lon double precision, year_built smallint, sqft int, prop_value money, zoning varchar(10), landuse varchar(255)); \copy buildings_tilemill FROM '/<path-to-csv-file>' WITH CSV HEADER;

Building demolitions

demolitions/

All buildings demolished since 2006.

Building violations

violations/

Every building violation issued by the City of Chicago since 2006.

Construction Spending

construction_spending/

Total construction spending by census block group.

census_block_groups.sql Flat PostGIS data dump of Census block groups in Chicago

new_const_heatmap Custom PostGIS dump of new construction spending heatmap in chicago. Should be able to restore with pg_restore.

Land use

landuse/

Every building colored by its landuse. NOT COMPLETE: sql in the directory, table in psql.

landuse.sql Flat PostgreSQL data dump of building ids (bldg_gid) with a short description (shortdesc) and label (tilemill_display) of its land use. Data from the Chicago Metropolitan Agency for Planning

Renovations

new_renov_permits/

Every building with renovation since 2006, with a count of renovation and data for most recent renovation. NOT COMPLETE: SQL is in the directory, data in postgres, no tilemill yet.

Analysis

analysis/

Datasets for analysis and visualization. Currently a csv file of building counts by decade of construction, for a histogram.

Map website

index.html, site.css, site.js

Simple site to showcase tilemill maps. All the mapping js is in site.js, libraries are in javascripts/ dir.
