Visualizing Data for Greater Impact: Neighborhood Data Portal Training

On Thursday, July 26th from 12-1:30PM, Pratt Center for Community Development will host a training on the Neighborhood Data Portal.

This free training will demonstrate how you and your organization can maximize Pratt Center’s Neighborhood Data Portal (NDP) to apply and visualize data to develop impactful programs. In this session, you will:

  • Get to know and work with a variety of demographic and non-demographic data layers
  • Become familiar with the capabilities of all NDP tools
  • Learn how to draw and customize your own map for print
  • Learn 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 up to 33 vital datasets that break down NYC  by the numbers. We’ve made some essential upgrades to the portal this summer that will give you greater analytical control over the data you need to support your programs and make it easier for you to customize and share your work.

 This training will be led by Pratt Center GIS Specialist Sadra Shahab. While it will focus on the fundamentals of using the data portal, the training will also include tips and insights into how spatial data can strengthen and support healthy program development.
