PROGRESS // Decision Map Unweighted

Looking at the criteria of proximity to schools and childcare facilities as a negative and proximity to facilities that are for rehabilitation, criminal justice, transportation and hospitalization as positives we created this first draft of a decision map. More layers to be considered include real estate prices (in conversation with the fact that jail facilities have the potential to mitigate rising prices) and population density (in response to the fact that facilities should be located where most accessible to the public). Through interviews with locals at proposed jail locations each criteria of the maps will be weighted accordingly. Below the draft shows all criteria weighted evenly, showing the highlighted neighborhoods as prime locations. Interestingly enough, Staten Island is not showing up as a good location which coincides with the jail facilities being proposed in every borough but that one.
