This summer Urban Strategies Council worked with a team of students at Youth UpRising to carry out a detialed neighborhood conditions survey. This survey covered 1033 parcels in census tract 4097 in East Oakland and involved and assessment of the condition and type of each building in the neighborhood. Form this survey, a simple summary report was produced along with detailed maps of each variable surveyed. The students used handheld GPS/GIS devices to collect this information which was then collected and loaded into a geodatabase managed by the Council.
