Virtual training to help community-based organizations in NYC access, analyze and visualize data to enhance their programming.

About this Event

Join the Pratt Center for Community Development’s Senior GIS Specialist Sadra Shahab for a complimentary training on how you and your organization can maximize Pratt Center’s Neighborhood Data Portal to visualize program data in an impactful way and practice data-responsive program design. 

What you’ll learn in this training:

  • Get to know and work with a variety of demographic and non-demographic data layers
  • Master the capabilities of all tools
  • How to draw on and customize your own map for print
  • How to select and export data as excel tables, which allows for greater data processing and other visualization options

About the Neighborhood Data Portal

Launched by Pratt Center in 2016, the Neighborhood Data Portal is a free, online data mapping platform that integrates several dozen datasets that break down NYC by the numbers. While this training will focus on the fundamentals of using the data portal, we will also include tips and insights into how spatial data can strengthen and support healthy program development.

About the Instructor

This training will be led by Pratt Center for Community Development's Senior GIS Specialist Sadra Shahab, who created the Neighborhood Data Portal in 2016. Sadra teaches graduate-level city planning and GIS courses at Pratt Institute and regularly leads data literacy workshops for community-based organizations, organizers and advocates.
