Property Dashboard

Presentation by Steve Saylor

The Western Pennsylvania Regional Data Center’s Property Dashboard integrates data from multiple data sources and provides it all in one place. The tool allows you to view property data in one place as easy as clicking on a map. It is built on top of our property data API which integrates data from multiple data sources. We plan to add new features to the tool, and received great feedback from people at our user group meeting in March.


One audience member asked, "what would it take to adapt this?" The original property data downloader, Chris Whong's Pluto Plus (from Github) can be used by anyone comfortable with javascript and Carto. For a multi dataset one like Parcels N'at – you would need to build an API to join across data sets. It currently fits our purpose at the WPDRC, but it will be modified to be easily integrated with ckan and eventually other data. management systems.
