Crowdsourced neighborhood boundaries, Part One: Consensus. As you may recall, we’re running an ongoing project soliciting opinions on Boston’s neighborhood boundaries via an interactive map.

Crowdsourced neighborhood boundaries, Part One: Consensus

We want to keep collecting data, but we’ve already received excellent responses that we’re itching to start mapping, and when we hit 300 submissions recently it seemed like a good enough milestone to take a crack at it. (That’s actually 300 minus some junk data. If you offer the ability to draw freeform shapes, some people draw random rectangles and triangles, and some people draw… er, other long, tipped objects.) There are many questions to be asked here.
