  1. Map Virginia Beach's neighborhoods!

    The city of Virginia Beach doesn't have a polygon map of its neighborhood boundaries. This makes breaking down crime stats and all types of other geography-based analysis much more difficult. I propose we draw our own, with the input of citizens and city officials.

      City of Virginia Beach is conducting a survey to determine how many neighborhoods exist. Current estimate is large number with wide variation, at least 100 and possibly as many as 500. In the meantime, check out where some boundary files are being drawn by curators. Point lists for these should be accessible but it might require some scraping. Nextdoor has also been making neighborhood maps in VB with cooperation of City of VB Volunteer Services. Status of these maps is unknown.
