Modeling Eminent Domain In ArcGIS for the City of Philadelphia
Track: Modeling Techniques
Authors: supratim banik
Philly’s 600K parcels are tested by the model against 85 violation codes & sub codes for blight.
GIS handled large spatial dataset well.
Vector tools, rather than raster tools were used, since it was a data centric model.
This model is now being successfully used by the Philadelphia Redevelopment Authority for its condemnation purposes.
This would teach the audience to create a fairly complex model in Model Builder, with basic tools and python codes.
