Unlocking Open Data for Community Boards through data journeys

January 18, 2018 @ 6:30 PM - 8:30 PM EST

*** To attend this event, you must register via eventbrite. ***

As the result of a three year partnership with the Manhattan Borough President’s Office, BetaNYC has designed tools and customized trainings specifically intended to help Community Boards access, analyze, map and use data to inform decision-making. This workshop will introduce an easy-to-use BoardStat tool to query NYC 311 – service requests and explore trends in health, safety and quality of life concerns. Additional key datasets/ tools will also be reviewed. Come ready to learn and get right into datasets and graphs.

Bring a laptop and be prepared to learn how to easily make 311 part of your committee!

BoardStat is designed for community boards by community boards. Not only does BoardStat empower a community board staff and its members to gain timely insights, it is furthering the Manhattan Borough President’s long-standing goal of making government transparent and responsive, reactive, and moving beyond open data access to meaningful use.

This training and BoardStat are open to the general public. Join us to learn how NYC’s open data can make you a better informed neighbor.
