Authors: Darshna Patel, Abigail Poses
Over the next several years, the Philadelphia City Planning Commission (PCPC) will complete 18 strategic district plans, taking many of the broad-brushed objectives of PCPC’s Citywide Vision, Philadelphia2035 and applying them at the local level. Through the use of ArcGIS Online, PCPC’s GIS division has enhanced the traditional planning process by adding interactive online mapping components. This technology promotes increased civic engagement and participation.
