For the final project, I plan on compiling a visual map which record NYCHA’s housing complexes. The intention is to analyze NYCHA’s housing properties in relation to their site conditions, and to see if there is a tangible connection between the typology of the site condition and date that the property was built. The typologies that will be utilized in this project are: edge conditions/neighborhood borders, waterfront/flood zoning conditions, medical center adjacency, and infrastructural fragment adjacencies. The study will be from the 1930’s to the late 1990’s.
Using CARTDB or a GIS software will enable me to precisely document these properties and parameters. I am hoping that this map can be an interactive learning tool for future students. Students should be able to freely zoom in and out of the map and hover over properties to learn about their basic information.
