From our cousins in LA: a new time sink. For those of us already jaded by Zillow and Google Earth, we can refresh ourselves with The California Infill Parcel Locator an online mapper of- you guessed it- unused parcels of land. From our friends at UC Berkeley.
The point of the exercise (for the creators) is identifying unused parcels of land for green infill development. We, of course will twist it entirely to our own personal use. The bit of Oakland above completely put us over the top.
