Greetings from the Cartographic Modeling Lab at Penn:

Do you need detailed information about a specific property in your neighborhood? Are you looking for data to help write grants? Ever wanted to view Philadelphia data on a quick, detailed, and interactive website?

If you answered yes to any of the above questions you should attend a free hour-long training at the University of Pennsylvania about the Philadelphia Neighborhood Information System. The NIS is designed to help community-based organizations, government agencies, researchers and concerned individuals in their efforts to analyze, transform and revitalize Philadelphia neighborhoods.

You can learn more about and preview NIS at our website:

The Cartographic Modeling Lab will be holding three trainings on parcelBase, neighborhoodBase, and muralBase on the follow dates:

November 19th from 6-7pm

This is an introductory training designed primarily for new users. There is no cost for the training, however space is limited so pre-registration is required. If you would like to register for training please e-mail Bradley Breuer, NIS Outreach Coordinator, at and include your name, organization, contact information, and your preferred training date. E-mail is the best way to register for the training as it ensures that I’ll get your message directly. We hope to see you in one of our upcoming trainings.
