Partner's Perspective: NNIP and Open Data in Baltimore

September 3, 2014

Abstract

The Baltimore Neighborhood Indicators AllianceJacob France Institute (BNIA-JFI) housed at the University of Baltimore is a key player in Baltimores open data community. BNIA-JFI connects the city government, civil society, and the tech community through hackathons and other events to create products like baltimorevacants.org, an online mapping tool that pinpoints vacant buildings and links them to neighborhood-level demographic indicators. The increasing number of people and organizations who want BNIA-JFI to provide open data solidifies BNIA-JFIs role in the conversation on data-driven decisionmaking for neighborhoods.
