Cornerwise is a Code for Boston project that aims to make it easier to
explore and visualize past, present, and pending changes to the built
environment. For now, we're exploring better ways to show the contents
of Somerville, MA's Reports and Decisions page.
In its current state, the project breaks more or less neatly into three
Somerville-specific code that ingests semi-structured data from the city's Reports and Decisions page and transforms it into searchable structured data.

We welcome contributions from people of all skillsets. The best way to
get involved is by coming to a Tuesday
Hack Night and asking about the
project. You can also take a look at our issues page to find
unclaimed issues marked bite-sized or self-contained. These labels
refer to issues that are, respectively, small or that require minimal
familiarity with the existing codebase.
See the Setup file for full instructions on getting
Cornerwise running locally.
