Blight Status is a configuration of Operations Dashboard for ArcGIS that can be used by local government leaders to proactively monitor the status of blight complaints and efforts made to reduce blighted properties.

Blight Status complements the Citizen Problem Reporter application and leverages complaint information submitted by the general public. It can also be configured to visualize blighted properties identified by the general public using the Photo Survey application. If your organization is not using the Citizen Problem Reporter application, publish your blight complaint information to your ArcGIS organization before configuring Blight Status.
