Building Urban Analytics for Hub
Addressing complex urban and community problems requires a holistic approach to spatial analysis, planning and policy. ArcGIS Hub organizes these goals into Initiatives that drive data sharing and configurable apps that inform and engage constituents to work together. Transit accessibility, public safety, personal health, and community resilience are just a few of the themes that can be improved with urban analytics. This session will discuss how we can use ArcGIS Hub as a starting point for urban analytics; how open data published from local governments can be applied and analyzed to explore the phenomena that surrounds us every day. Using the ArcGIS API for Python and several python libraries, we’ll ingest and aggregate data from ArcGIS Hub, perform exploratory and statistical analyses, and use predictive modeling to answer our questions. Finally, we’ll show how this kind of work can be shared back with the governing body and give your efforts a voice.
