Our (The Frederick News-Post) website just got a new feature, and I'm really excited about it.
I've been writing about vacant and run-down properties in the city of Frederick since starting with the paper about two years ago. Last year, the city made a list of the most troublesome properties, and they are updating the public every quarter about the city's progress in making property owners bring the properties up to city code. Because I have the exact address of the properties, I thought the best way to visualize where these properties are, as well as share the update with the community, would be to create an interactive map. Last week, our excellent web editor spent some time creating a page for that map to live on. I'm really happy with how it turned out.
Check it out.
