Upcoming in April 2004: CMAP at NPowerNY workshop: CMAP will be speaking at one of NPowerNY's "Tech Talks" in April, titled Welcome to the Neighborhood: An Introduction to Community Mapping for Nonprofits. It's a free workship where you'll discover how community mapping technology can help you learn more about the people you serve, and thus more effectively carry out (and promote!) your organization's work.

2-3-04: Two new features were announced today for our popular Who Represents Me website:

1) we've added Community Boards to the list of representatives for any address in NYC (with a link that goes directly to the corresponding map on a new website created by CMAP and sponsored by the Municipal Art Society -- the "Community Information Technology Initiative", at www.MyCITI.org); and

2) we've included an update link for elected officials and their staffs, so they can send updates whenever their district office address, phone or fax numbers, emails, or website links change.

December 2003: OASIS is growing:The OASIS website (Open Accessible Space Information System ) for NYC has been updated with a wealth of new data, improved mapping tools, and more resources, including:

  • Harbor Estuary Program Acquisition & Restoration sites with support from US EPA;
  • Natural Areas in parklands in NYC, based on a comprehensive survey by New Yorkers for Parks and the NYC Audubon Society;
  • new information on community gardens and other properties around the city;
  • a regional view of open spaces;
  • mapping tools that let you draw a "zoom in" box to more accurately zoom to specific areas; and
  • a special resources section with information and links about the Asian Longhorn Beetle, a comprehensive bibliography, and updated NYC Council Profiles (provided by New Yorkers for Parks).
