Free Trainings on Neighborhood Information System
Posted by on March 21, 2003
Have you ever needed to find data about your neighborhood for a grant application? Would you like to learn how to make a map showing local parks and schools? Do you wonder how housing prices in your neighborhood compare to others across the city?
If the answer to any of these questions is YES then you should come to a free one hour training at the University of Pennsylvania to learn how to use the neighborhoodBase website. NeighborhoodBase is part of the Neighborhood Information System (NIS) and is designed to help community-based organizations, government agencies, researchers and concerned individuals in their efforts to analyze, transform and revitalize Philadelphia neighborhoods.
