What our members say about us
"Chicago Cityscape represents a smart solution to the problem of uncoordinated public information. The City of Chicago data portal and other available public databases can in their complexity to use discourage users, Chicago Cityscape's database makes retrieving information easy for all levels of user sophistication. Utilizing the data and report pages can create new ideas to solve old problems. It assists in my community volunteer activities to identify potential solutions for legislation, property inventory management, volunteer resource optimization, development/demolition watch and city infrastructure transparency."
