This post shows how the Philadelphia’s Code Violation Notice data can be used to identify local litter hot spots. In this example, I have selected the 2013 sidewalk and premise code violation notices within the Germantown Connections boundary.
Here is my ARCMap result:
Each of the 829 red dots represents a sidewalk or premise code violation notice issued in 2013.
I’ve been thinking about how local community development groups and City agencies could use this type of litter GIS data analysis to identify litter hot spots, monitor year-to-year litter changes (hopefully improvements) to effectively and focus attention in problem areas.
