About Motor City Mapping

MCM is a comprehensive effort to digitize Detroit’s property information and create clear communication channels back and forth between the public, the government, and city service providers.

In Phase 1 of the project, 150 Detroiters surveyed the entire city, capturing photography and condition information for every property. That information was used in the Detroit Blight Elimination Task Force’s report at timetoendblight.com.

Now you are invited to review and update the original survey data using the Blexting mobile app, and to explore survey and property information through the mapping dashboard on this website.

Your contributions and updates will be reviewed by a Quality Control team who will update the site and the city’s database.

Email us at info@motorcitymapping.org with feedback, ideas, or to request an in-person training session for your community, block club or organization. MotorCityMapping.org is made with love by Loveland Technologies. Quality Control provided by Data Driven Detroit.
