View Baltimore’s vacant buildings 300 at a time [MAP]

Another map cataloging Baltimore city’s vacant buildings has been built using the vacant building data set on OpenBaltimore.

This map, from Washington, D.C.-based Develop_For, queries the addresses for just 300 vacant buildings at a time. “which makes the application fast and decreases the marker load time,” said Develop_For developer and southern Maryland resident Will Carroll.

Civic hacker Shea Frederick also has an interactive map that displays Baltimore’s vacant properties. Frederick’s map, as Technical.ly Baltimore reported, cross-references the vacant building data set with neighborhood information collected by the Baltimore Neighborhood Indicators Alliance.
