Open Data Week 2020: Mapping Community Needs & Resources in NYC

March 5 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm

Open Data Week 2020: Mapping Community Needs & Resources in NYC

What types of institutions are needed for communities to thrive? How can New Yorkers develop an asset-based approach to addressing specific community needs?

This workshop aims to tackle these questions through the Community Asset Mapping tool on Citizens’ Committee for Children’s flagship database, data.cccnewyork.org. Drawing from many sources hosted by Open Data NYC, the database maps the existence of local assets like farmers’ markets, libraries, banks and more, and compares these institutions with community-level indicators of well-being. Along with assets that we expect to see in every community in the city, the database also plots various supports related to workforce development, housing stability, and other essential services for communities with greater needs.

After a brief introduction to the database and demo of the Asset Mapping tool, participants will break into smaller groups and explore the data based on their interest, followed by a broader discussion around local planning efforts to improve child and family well-being.

An optional 30-minute training will be available following the session for those interested in learning how to create their own asset maps using raw asset data from our database, Excel and Google My Maps.

**Please bring a laptop or tablet, if you can**
