Overview

 

We now live in the information age, where data is the raw material of innovation. As people who plan, manage, and shape the cities you live in, where your decisions come from and how they’re made matters. Today, many planners are beginning to make more sustainable, people-centered decisions that are rooted in data and analytics. However, accessing the overwhelming amount of information available, sharing it, and using that insight to move projects forward can often be difficult.

 

Key Learning Objectives

 

  • Discover how technology has influenced the way cities and planning professionals make decisions

  • Understand how data is being used to tell stories and connect people to places

  • Learn about tools and techniques being used to efficiently manage data visualization, analysis, and sharing

  • Explore how others in the Kansas City metro and across the country are using data to make more confident data-driven decisions
