Map: Detroit Block Vacancy Rate 2009

BlockVacancyRate_linnRob Linn had some “Ruminations on Right-sizing Part I” and utilized data from a massive survey similar to the recent Motor City Mapping Project. Here is a snippet from his blog:

According to the Detroit Residential Parcel Survey data, 10,683 of the city’s 32,913 blocks are comprised of at least 25% vacant lots.
Why isn’t this data in an open and downloadable format? The online viewer is helpful, but this data should be released.
