usability 2 If someone just wants to see the list of code violation citations, then this is easily accesses through the dataset. If they want to see all violations associated with a parcel, they will have to work through creating a relate on the data. This requires some knowledge of GIS, but there is no way to provide a related dataset via an open data site.

This data is used for the Code Enforcement web application, which provides a way for people to view code violations and their status through a web map. If the data are viewed without a map, then the violations are provided as a list. If they want to view them using a web map, and to see the historic information, then they would have to process the data (create a relate) using GIS for that
