Figure 2. GIS map of vacant buildings in Baltimore’s Reservoir Hill neighborhood
Data presented as a map. Figure 2 uses red dots to show the locations of vacant buildings by block in the Baltimore City’s Reservoir Hill neighborhood, as mapped using Geographic Information System (GIS) software. The map shows dozens of vacant buildings distributed throughout; on several blocks, vacant buildings are clustered together.
Such GIS maps can help city officials assess block and neighborhood conditions as well as opportunities for redevelopment.
