Training: Neighborhood Information System

Posted by on November 21, 2003

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 two trainings on parcelBase, neighborhoodBase, and muralBase on the follow dates. This will be your last chance to attend a training until we resume trainings in late January.

December 3rd from 1-2pm
December 10th from 10-11am

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. If you know someone who would benefit from this training, please forward this message to that person. Thanks!
