  • DATA & TECHNOLOGY HealthyCity.org allows users to search for local services, conduct research and connect with their communities. Beyond providing free access to the largest database of community services and localized data variables, HealthyCity.org offers the ability for users to “tell their own story” by uploading their own data or multimedia to the system.More about www.HealthyCity.org:Locate Resources: Focusing on one of our key goals to help families find resources through intermediaries such as case managers, social workers, etc., we display LA County 2-1-1 social service resources. We are partnering with 2-1-1 agencies in other regions of California in order to display that data and increase accessibility to resources.Conduct Analysis: HealthyCity.org has the capacity to map community characteristics (over 2300 variables) such as demographic, health, economic, park/green space, etc. You can create community profiles and find gaps in services in relation to need. With the statewide expansion, Healthy City has expanded crime and public safety data, as well as new statewide health data, child welfare and public assistance data. Web 2.0 Features: Users can upload their own points of interest, create their own neighborhood boundaries, and save maps! For the statewide platform, Healthy City users will be able to create online affinity groups and share maps, charts, videos, pictures, and comments with partners across California.
  • HC.org provides these people with data and technology to support their work within and on behalf of our communities. HC.org helps encourage data-driven planning and inform policy within sectors such as Education, Public Safety, Health, Public Health, Government, etc.
  • The next two slides show two major ‘types’ of data – point & thematic.
  • Viewing point and thematic data together enables you to get an initial picture of the distribution of resources, while understanding a particular characteristic about an area. For example, are there educational resources in areas with low educational attainment? Is there access to fresh food in areas with a high concentration of people with diabetes?
  • (Uploading Data and multi-media, Creating neighborhood boundaries, Saving searches maps and more!)
  • You can provide your representative with a map of their jurisdiction, showing the need for bi-lingual services and materials.
  • *Story can be found in Share & Connect room (if public, or if a private group and a member is logged in); Story can be embedded on a website
