The Empire Strikes Back: LA Times' Updated Neighborhood Maps
Earlier this year the LA Times launched their "Mapping L.A. Neighborhoods" project, when they released some maps with basic neighborhood boundaries and offered themselves up to the mercy (or malice) of the public for feedback and input. And spoke we did, giving the project managers plenty to work with, prompting them to make "nearly 100 boundary changes, producing an updated map showing 113 neighborhood subdivisions within the city," they say.
Now the Times has debuted these updated maps, and are still looking for commentary, much like what they heard about the initial maps. "We hope to keep that conversation going. Please use these pages to tell us more about the places you live," requests the Times, and then dangles a carrot to those beyond the boundaries: "For those who live in Southern California, but outside the city of Los Angeles, stay tuned. We plan to bring you the same type of community pages in the coming months."
