A new way of keeping track of the changes caused by one of the nation's "most ambitious urban redevelopment projects."
Josh Green shares news of an interactive data mapping tool published online by the Atlanta Beltline in partnership with Neighborhood Nexus.
Atlanta BeltLine has published two maps—the Investment Data Explorer and the Demographic Data Explorer. Together, according to Green, the maps are "convenient means of keeping tabs on changes brought, in part, by one of America’s most ambitious urban redevelopment projects."
The Investment Data Explorer, "drills down on funding and progress across BeltLine subareas related to parks, housing, trails, transit and streetscapes, and arts and culture," explains Green. The Demographic Data Explorer "vividly illustrates shifts in population densities, incomes, rent growth, and other metrics since the BeltLine’s conception."
