Filming Notification Map System

Back in March a helicopter hovering at midnight got Downtown into a serious discussion about filming. DLANC formed an ad-hoc committee to look at the issues, and from that Film LA issued new interim rules for the Historic Core. One of the clear problems that's been identified is that of filming notification.

In an effort to help those of us Downtown know what's going on I've been working hard over the last few months to create a system that lets us see all notifications together. After leaping various hurdles, including dealing with FilmLA's choice for notification format and their lack of standardization in those notifications, I have released the Filming Notification Map to the public.

The system isn't perfect and there are still many bugs to be worked out and features to be added, but it is a good start. To learn more about the technical aspects of the system as well as my motivations for creating it, check out this post on my blog.
