New England Indicator Project

by @ 7:31 am. Filed under Real Estate, Technology

Last Saturday I attended the New England News Forum at the Wannalancit Mills in Lowell. I found one seminar of particular interest. It dealt with the New England Indicator Project. One aspect of this project deals with mapping and plotting information crucial to understanding our region. The goal of the New England Indicator Project is to help the region survive in the face of tough economic competition from around the world and other parts of the country. Although the mapping portion of the project is still in the beta stage, the concept is fascinating… Using a digital map online users will be able to highlight and area, select the data type they want then watch the results. Information is being gathered in area such as housing, energy, transportation, safety, environment, education and health. Coincidentally, the demonstration prototype was designed to display median mortgage considerations in a particular neighborhood. This range could have been expanded to include much larger sections of the state. This project is expected to be live in the next six months to one year. For some reason I couldn’t find the link to the New EnglandIndicator Project but if you would like to see a similar example you can visit the Boston Indicator Project here.
