In 2016, Pratt Center for Community Development created the Neighborhood Data Portal (NDP), a free online mapping application that integrates 63 datasets to break down New York City’s neighborhoods by the numbers. By democratizing access to open government data and pairing it with essential planning tools like mapping and data analysis, the portal advances Pratt Center's mission to support low-moderate income communities to plan for the future they want to see.

In this interactive workshop, Pratt Center will demonstrate how the NDP acts as an intermediary between open data and community stakeholders who advocate for more equitable neighborhoods. Participants will gain a sharper understanding of the role that intermediary platforms like the NDP can play in transforming raw data into spatial and visual formats that help communities tell their stories. The workshop will also address the importance of trainings to help ensure that community development practitioners and community organizers are equipped to use intermediary tools regardless of their background in data collection, analysis, and representation. The importance of understanding metadata will also be highlighted.

Space and related requirements for this workshops include: a microphone (depending on size of space), a projector, and a computer.
