"Free MapPluto Now!" -- why?

From: fkh

Let's assemble a list of great projects that will be possible with free PLUTO. What great opportunities are being blocked by this data being closed?

And yes, I know that there are myriad future benefits of open land use that we can't possibly imagine yet, but let's think of some specifics for right now. 

Here's one: 

Organizing residents along my block to work on vacant storefronts on Rogers Ave in Brooklyn. Land use data would help me make useful maps and understand more about the properties that are empty. I could post those maps on the storefronts, and hand them out at the neighboring businesses.
