The Neighborhood Project is creating a map of city neighborhoods based on the collective opinions of internet users. Addresses and neighborhood data are translated into latitude and longitude values, and then drawn on a map. The address and neighborhood data are collected from housing posts on Craigslist, and from people filling out a form on the web. It is an experiment in collective knowledge. The more people who add their opinion to the database, the more accurate the neighborhood boundaries become.
