Mapping Brownfields


Working with The Center for Economic Development at Carnegie Mellon, the WPBC scoured old land use maps and tax records for former industrial sites in the region. These sites were mapped onto the Pittsburgh Neighborhood & Community Information System (PNCIS), which already maps condemned properties, County tax liens, and properties with demolition permits among other sites.  The PNCIS is used to assist in the development of Pittsburgh neighborhoods but the format will have application to other communities.
