APPLIED PUBLIC PARTICIPATION GEOGRAPHIC INFORMATION SYSTEMS
WhoData is a community-university-municipal partnership that since 2009
developed the integrated and shared data sets with virtual systems using
internet mapping system (IMS) technology.
WhoData.org empowers organizations by providing a platform to map and
analyze quality of life issues. This online mapping tool allows residents to
assess their own neighborhoods, highlight properties that show indicators
of blight, create their own maps and property lists, and share this
information with the public. The site was launched in 2010 and has
received over 1.9 million hits. It is a free, non-marketed, 24-7 website.

LOWER NINTH WARD: WHODATA
PARTNERS SURVEY ANALYSIS
The WhoData team has trained
trainers and volunteers on how
to survey land uses, read a
parcel map, determine
characteristics of blight,
identify housing and
commercial occupancy and
recognize other built
environment information that
a community requires when
making decisions for future
needs and growth.
Over the course of three
months in 2012, WhoData
team members and volunteers
surveyed over seven thousand
properties in the Lower Ninth
Ward. A comprehensive report
concerning the data results
can be found on WhoData.net

LAKEVIEW: STREET CONDITION ANALYSIS
Community Partners: Lakeview Civic Improvement Association
(LCIA), Regional Planning Commission
In September 2012 volunteers from the Lakeview Civic
Improvement Association (LCIA) began taking inventory of
street conditions in the Lakeview area of New Orleans, LA.
After establishing a protocol that was developed in
cooperation with the Regional Planning Commission,
WhoData.org and LCIA, volunteers evaluated streets
conditions block-by-block and collected primary data to be
analyzed and incorporated within a geographic information
system (GIS).
The LCIA presented their findings to the City departments of Water
& Sewer and Highway. They are now working together on a
strategy to prioritize street repairs.

of Lakeview streets containing
potholes this is the most
common identified street
condition in Lakeview. Raised
Manhole covers are an
identified concern on 22.2% of
Lakeview streets. At only 4.4%
Storm Drain covers present the
least amount of problems in

Areas of Focus:
New project as of September 2013:
Between 2011-2012, the City of New

houses were raised to meet the new
elevation standards and left on
vacant lots managed by the City. The
buildings have not been renovated
and many are not secure.
WhoData has just completed a
property condition survey. We are
providing AND-NDF with site photos
