I would love to do something in coordination with GeoNYC!

All of these issues seem like they need a night to be mapped… Get it? ;-)

For now, I'm throwing up a save the date < http://www.meetup.com/betanyc/events/131513812/ >. Maybe this hacknight can be a partnership with NYC Geo Meetup?

Jessie, Alyssa, Vivian, and Liz - I'd love to see the following sessions…
1. How to use PLUTO
2. Integrate in OSM editathon?
3. What licensing restrictions that need to be removed?

Thoughts?

Yes, this is relevant to the building heights in OSM discussion. the PLUTO lot dataset contains "number of floors" for buildings, but the building footprint geometry is in another file that -- as far as i know -- still has that restrictive DOB license lingering in its metadata.

I'd love to join a conversation about MapPLUTO! I've been using it almost daily for the past 8 years. There are a lot of nuances to this data set (and accuracy issues) that new users might not be aware of. Might be helpful to have an educational session for betaNYC members.

Great Job. I woould love to sit together and hear more about how to use this data.
Is someone else interested to share their view and skills?

For years, NYC's geo-spacial nurds have been frustrated by the cost of NYC's land use and geographic data at the tax lot level. If you wanted this data one would have to pipe out $1,500 for all 5 boroughs and then $1,500 for updates.

In April, almost a month after the one year birthday of the city's Open Data law, the NYC Transparency Working Group, The New York World, Steve Romalewski, MuckRock, and 596 Acres started to ask "when will mapPLUTO be free?" 

Well, today is that day… 

PLUTO HAS BEEN FREED! 
DOWNLOAD PLUTO TODAY!

Many thanks to NYC.gov's Chief Analytics Office and DoITT for hearing us out and helping remove the cost barriers!
