Video: The Cartographers of the New Millenium

Whodata.org is an online mapping tool for the city of New Orleans. It provides organizations throughout the city to analyze properties in their area. It allows residents to assess their own neighborhoods, highlight properties that show indicators of blight, create their own maps and property lists, and share this information with the public.

In "Cartographers of the New Millenium," UNO film student Mason Lipscomb interviews Dr. Michelle Thompson, Assistant Professor at the University of New Orleans Department of Planning & Urban Studies, about the project, what it does, and how it can help local communities.

The Film and Theatre Department of UNO and NolaVie present this series of short films produced by the students in Laszlo Fulop's documentary class. Read Renee Peck's column about the program here.
