features the LAND Tool as the Innovation of the Month!

In’s “Civic Innovation” section this month they feature the LAND (Land Access for Neighborhood Development) tool, a mapping platform developed with CCS’ Software Engineering team for UM’s Office of Civic and Community Engagement that visualizes the distribution of Miami’s underused properties to help identify potential development opportunities for affordable housing. As part of a partnership with MetroLab, the GovTech feature is part of a segment called the “MetroLab Innovation of the Month” series, which highlights impactful tech, data, and innovation projects underway between cities and universities.

MetroLab’s Ben Levine and Stefania Di Mauro-Nava spoke with Robin Bachin, assistant provost for Civic and Community Engagement, and Jorge Damian de la Paz, senior program manager, both in the UM Office of Civic and Community Engagement; Michael Liu, director of the Miami-Dade County Public Housing and Community Development Department; and Annie Lord, executive director of Miami Homes for, to learn more.
