Our friends at BeyondDC have made a nifty little simplified map of the DC zoning code (yellow is residential, red is commercial, gray is park/institutional/industrial) out of GIS data provided by the local government. It’s nice and all, but when you reduce such a beautifully complex and meticulous plan to a mere three colors, you lose all the local flavor that makes DC unique. So, I’ve taken the liberty of mining the GIS data and annotating the map a bit, in an attempt to better present the true spirit of The Zoning Code:
…I was tempted to put the “Fine. But only till the black people leave” in a big fat watermark over the entire city, but alas, I made it with Pixlr.
DC residents, feel free to leave additional annotations in the comments.

This is just obnoxious. Why must you make it so hard to respect this blog?!

Is there anything in particular you object to?
