PLUTO has been freed! This month, GEO NYC's Maptime working group and betaNYC are spending the month exploring the data.

We are not talking about the planetoidial mass at the end of the Solar System. We are talking about one of NYC's most valuable datasets. After years of advocacy, NYC's Department of City Planning has liberated the city's land use and geographic data at the tax lot level. (Read about it here.)

For this Wed's BetaTalk, Steven Romalewski (@SR_spatial), CUNY, and Jessie Braden (@JessieBraden), PRATT, two long standing NYC Civic Hackers/Mappers, will send us to the far reaches of the PLUTO data and show us the magic in the stars.

Download PLUTO, bring your laptop, and we will break up into small groups to explore PLUTO. Additionally, we will have (Jacek Grebski and Marianne Bellotti) talking about their platform and how to access PLUTO programmatically / via an API.

Next week, we will dedicate our #CivicHackNight to PLUTO.

On Aug 21st, we're hosting a demo night dedicated to PLUTO hacks, mapping tools, and other cool map hacks.

This week's #BetaTalk and next week's #CivicHackNight are graciously hosted by StreetEasy, New York City’s go-to source for the most accurate residential real estate information available. You can access their data via the StreetEasy API.
