Community-Based Mapping in South Bend, Indiana Using ArcGIS Collector
Track: Urban and Regional Planning
Authors: Matthew Sisk
Here we report on a project using ArcGIS Collector and webmaps to record and visualize property condition data. Working with the City of South Bend, Indiana and the Near-Northwest Neighborhood association, we developed coursework to train students and community members in documenting property conditions and abandoned properties in an economically variable neighborhood. Using this framework allows stakeholders to use the data directly without need for extensive technological training.
