Baltimore Property Scraper

I used this code to scrape three databases for information about non-owner occupied property in Baltimore, in hopes of identifying entities which own a large number of vacant properties. Check out the blog post for a full explanation and important caveats.

I was inspired by the work at Baltimore Slumlord Watch. Kate Bladow suggested I tackle this project.

Data

All of the data have been published to https://github.com/subelsky/baltimore_property/downloads. If you'd like to explore the data on your own I recommend loading non_owner_occupied_properties.tsv.gz into Google Refine.
