Dillard students join the Gentilly Project

Last weekend about six Dillard University students joined our project. It took them only about four hours to code 350 homes.

In the project, we've produced a public web-based map, generated by community volunteers, that identifies levels of recovery progress with a simple color-coding system: red (blighted property), yellow (property with signs of cleaning or gutting), blue (property that is occupied or exhibits major reconstruction); or green (demolished property or vacant lot).

I am very excited about the progress the Dillard students made this past weekend.
