Spatial queries should be able to tell that in combination with the
landuse shapefiles
( http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Baltimore,_Maryland/Landuse and
https://data.baltimorecity.gov/Geographic/Land-use-Shape/feax-3ycj ),
although my only experience with doing that sort of thing has been
with PostGIS databases; I don't know if QGIS can do it on its own.
