A Catalog of Civic Data Use Cases

What kinds of operations-enhancing questions have cities asked and answered with data and analytics? The catalog below is an ongoing, regularly-updated resource for those interested in knowing what specific use cases can be addressed using more advanced data and analysis techniques.

For examples that are currently being implemented in cities across the country, you can click to expand the question to see additional information about the solution.  All other examples represent potential questions that cities could work to address with data and analytics.

We welcome further submissions to the list by email.  Submissions can include either current examples of how cities are addressing specific operational or policy issues with data, or ideas for how to address issues that you hope cities will one day be able to answer.
