Correlating Bureaucratic Schemes to the Physical Environment


Zoning Scale V Building Scale

There are several government agencies who have plans for a city like Chicago. Many of these systems overlap and the organization between them is questionable. Through the use of QGIS there is an opportunity to map and evaluate how these different systems work together. This analysis can be taken a step further through the lens of the more detailed scaled of individual buildings. Comparing the efforts of the different levels of government to the actual results has the potential to be a useful tool in determining the effectiveness of tax based improvement plans and several other systems.
