PHS Philadelphia LandCare, Parcel Data Collection using Collector App
Track: Community Planning and Economic Development
Authors: Lauren Medsker
PHS’s Philadelphia LandCare program remediates blight on over 5,500 of the 40,000 vacant lots with a simple ‘Clean and Green’ interim landscape treatment. We conduct audits of these lots on a yearly basis, assessing damage, tree health, and dumping. In the past, auditing was done by pen and paper and manually inputted. This presentation will include our process of transitioning to the Collector app for streamlined field data collection, and how this better informs our current and future work.
