Using the property records used through the investigative piece on homeowner’s exemptions, The Midwest Center for Investigative Reporting sponsored the build for a searchable database to accompany the story.
This application is built using Python and GeoDjango. Records and map points are served up from a PostgreSQL database and presented using leaflet.js. Search queries are handled by Elastic Search. The application is hosted on Heroku.com.
