Neighborhood Revitalization: Vacant Failure to Register Violations 2010-2016

This page provides a visualization for "Vacant Failure to Regiser Property Violations" in Kansas City MO for 2016. The interactive map and filters are presented as a public service and intended to increase transparency and understanding of various conditions affecting neighborhoods and regions. This page draws on public data available through the Open Data KC Portal (see: OpenData KC for more data and visualizations). This page is processed using Tableau, a data visualization and analysis tool. Interested parties are encouraged to explore Tableau Public for additional applications and free resources. Please Contact Me if you have any suggestions or questions. I will be developing additional pages related to neighborhood revitalization and other outreach activities.

Organization and Usage Guide

This page consists of a dashboard that has been created from a number of separate Tabs including: Vacant-Fail Register; Number/Neigh; Num/Police District; and a dash that combines the 3 separate tabs. You will have to scroll down the tables on the dashboard so you might want to look at the individual Tabs for summary statistics. Note that I linked the filters for each page to the dashboard. There are three filters: Neighborhood, Zip Code, and Police District. When you deselect the default "All" you will see the tables contract to display stats only for the resultant properties. Also, the filters are simultaneous so you may wind up with combinations that have no entries; if the screen blanks, just add more options or change filters.

As of the date of this posting, there were 2,447 open"Failure to Register" violations in Jackson County during the 2010 to July 13, 2016. The data will be periodically updated as new information comes available through the OData connection provided by Open Data KC. Note you can zoom in or out or pan across the map. When you are in the active map pane you will see underlying data when you mouse over a point of interest.

When you are in the map pane (click to activate) and mouse over a property, you will see a list of key data items including: Address, Neighborhood, Zip Code, Jackson County Kiva PIN, Police District, Year of Violation, and Days Open. Please note you can use the Kiva PIN to search for additional information including ownership, usage, etc. for selected properties.

Caveat and Suggestions

At the current time, this page is connected to the official Kansas City OpenData Portal which is periodically updated. Other pages of interest to those involved in neighborhood revitalization in Kansas City MO include:

Please note a number of organizations are collaborating on efforts to help revitalize Kansas City Neighborhoods including the UMKC Law School, UMKC Lewis White Real Estate Center, Code for America KC Brigade, OpenData KC, and the Urban Neighborhood Coalition. This is an effort to complement those outreach initiatives.
