Open Data: City of Los Angeles Introduces Street Cleanliness Database

From the Mayor’s Office, City of Los Angeles:

Modeled after LAPD’s CompStat, CleanStat will provide quarterly, block-by-block assessments of the entire city to build data and identify trends in street cleanliness. The system uses dashcam video footage and GIS data to map, assess, and grade the degree of cleanliness of each street, alley, and sidewalk in the City of Los Angeles. When aggregated, the data will give city leaders a clear picture of L.A.’s cleanliness, both citywide and at the neighborhood level. This will allow them to target additional resources to communities with the greatest need.

This data is open to all, and Angelenos will be able to see exactly how their street fares by visiting cleanstreetsla.org.
