Ball State University's Department of Urban Planning and the Delaware County GIS Department have partnered over the last four years to complete neighborhood action plans for blighted areas of Muncie, Indiana. In the Neighborhood Analysis Studio, students utilize local GIS data and an ArcGIS Online smartphone application to do inventory, analysis, suitability and priority maps for plan initiatives. Upon completion, the final plans are given to the neighborhood associations for implementation.
