    77* [Deployments/Sandy/Occupy OccupySandy] managing Requests for Supplies & Volunteers
    88
    9 == Requirements ==
    10 These should be written as User Stories: BluePrint/Guidelines
    11 == Data ==
    12 * Boundaries and hierarchy:
    13  * L0, L1 & L2 are in GADM (done)
    14  * L3
    15   * Tiger: http://www.census.gov/cgi-bin/geo/shapefiles2010/layers.cgi
    16    * No use for NYC as it puts 1 L3 Borough in each L2 County
    17   * Brooklyn: http://geocommons.com/overlays/6090
    18   * NY State civil boundaries: http://gis.ny.gov/gisdata/inventories/details.cfm?DSID=927 \\
    19     "boundaries of incorporated places in New York State (state, counties, cities, towns, villages, and Indian reservations)" \\
    20     (Note ocpyrighted.)
    21  * L4 (Zipcodes) -- polygons and parents
    22   * NYS
    23    * http://gis.ny.gov/gisdata/inventories/details.cfm?DSID=934
    24    * needs parenting to L3s via http://www.health.ny.gov/statistics/cancer/registry/appendix/neighborhoods.htm (done but this is only for NYC)
    25   * NJ
    26    * http://geocommons.com/overlays/22081
    27    * Could extract hierarchy from one of these:
    28     * http://www.brainyzip.com/state/zip_newjersey.html
    29     * http://newjersey.hometownlocator.com/zip-codes/counties.cfm
    30   * Important zipcode facts: http://www.maponics.com/products/gis-map-data/maps-reports/zip-code-maps/faqs/
    31    * Zipcodes can cross administrative region boundaries. They don't cross state boundaries, but do cross county boundaries. (For the population centers project, when we found a zipcode that spanned admin regions, we partitioned the zipcode -- made one location record for each partition. Names were qualified with the parent region.)
    32    * Zipcode regions are not technically polygons but rather groups of addresses.
    33    * USPS neither needs nor maintains boundary polygons.
    34    * Each zipcode is assigned by USPS to a city, but not by boundary inclusion -- rather, this is by which post office delivers mail to that zipcode. Thus lists of USPS-designated cities cannot be used for the location hierarchy.
    35    * Zipcodes have a prefix hierarchy.
    36     * http://stevemorse.org/jcal/zip.html
    37     * Three-digit zipcode prefixes by state: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_ZIP_code_prefixes
    38  * Full hierarchy w/o shapefiles is available from http://www.zip-codes.com/zip-code-database.asp for US$40. They allow looking up data in batches here http://www.zip-codes.com/search.asp, but would need to copy & paste the table part of the page into a file (not the html, just select the rows in the rendered page). Caution: We do not want to use copyrighted or proprietary material w/o the requisite payment or attribution. Could contact them and inquire about temporary use of the information.
