"Using the latest digital mapping technologies, “Local Code” documents the location and character of 1,500 City-owned “remnant parcels” in San Francisco. Conceived of by UC Berkeley professor Nicholas de Monchaux, the project uses geospatial analysis and parametric modeling to provide tools for citizens to transform these derelict pockets of public space into useful and beautiful places that, when combined, could contribute significantly to the City’s larger sustainability goals."
