Random readings on society, politics and change – Jorge Carrillo
For urban planners, the promise of data offers unprecedented access to information, citizen engagement, and solutions to some of the most significant challenges facing urban areas, such as traffic, infrastructure, and pollution. Data used for land use and planning decisions are largely collected and owned by government entities, however, in the near future, private companies will increasingly maintain data.
Right now, we don’t know what a lasting and equitable partnership for data sharing looks like. Examples and cases from planners will be necessary to understand the pros and cons of undertaking such relationships. In the interim, planners must 1) invest in learning about the changing public data landscape, 2) play an active role in shaping the future of such relationships through engagement and partnership, 3) document and share related experiences, and 4) expand the professional skill set to include data analytical and visualization capabilities.
