Bmore Connected maps the city's homelessness services.

The Bmore Connected map shows the locations of homeless shelters, food and emergency service agencies and the routes of the free Charm City Circulator bus system.
Created with Google Maps Engine Lite, it’s being called the first iteration of a map depicting all the homelessness services available in Baltimore city.

Google’s Lite version of its Maps Engine “lets everyday users draw objects and import locations for their own reference,” but the beta version “limits users to ‘small’ spreadsheet imports and a maximum of three data sets for comparisons,” according to Engadget.
A recent point-in-time survey estimated that more than 4,000 people are homeless in Baltimore, despite the city’s best efforts to stamp out homelessness since the creation of its 10-year plan in 2008.
Maps identifying homeless services available in Baltimore city seem well suited to nonprofits looking to coordinate their efforts, or policy makers interested in expanding homeless services to different areas of the city.
