  • 1. Accessing and Using Food Data to Support Collaborative Policy Decisions
    Center for Applied Research and Environmental Systems (CARES) - Columbia, MO
    Center for Systems Integration - Denver, CO
    Community Initiatives - Columbia, MO
    WPM Consulting - Boulder, CO
    LiveWell Colorado - Denver, CO
  • 2. Session Goals
    Demonstrate web based interactive mapping and reporting tools – accessing over 7000 publically available national source data layers
    Learn how other states are developing tools to arm both the state and communities to better understand the story of their food system
    Identify ways that mapping and reporting can be used to support collaboration and advance policy dialogue
    Discuss what else we need to advance our efforts!
  • 3. Session Overview
    Group Introductions
    Introduction to CARES
    CARES data management platforms
    Overview of the Colorado Food Assessment Framework
    Food Security, Resiliency & Access Module
    Break-Out Discussions
    Explore how and why to use data to understand and address issues of food access
    Group Discussion
    How are the tools working? What else might advance your work?
  • 4. Interactive Mapping
    Overlaying Local and National Data
    Points – hospitals, social services
    Areas– neighborhoods, cities, counties
    Lines – Roads, paths, trails
    Networks – Public transportation
    Imagery – Satellite, Aerial images
    Spatial Analysis – Proximity, buffer
    Mapping is a representation of the real world…
    We may tell a better story by overlaying more data…
  • 5. Public Good Components:
    Mapping and Reporting
  • 6. CARES Core Engine: Public Good Mapping
    All public data from all CARES contracts are housed in one national “Commons” Engine
    to benefit all communities
  • 7. Multiple Levels of Geography…
    CARES provides free access to the
    CARES Mapping Engine
  • 8. Dynamic Reports
  • 9. Compare Across Multiple Regions
  • 10. Report Output
    CARES provides free access to the
    CARES Reporting Engine
  • 11. Custom Application Components:
    National Collaborative Management Systems (NCMS)
  • 12. National Collaborative Management Systems
    Are Built on the Public Good Engine
  • 13. An Example NCMS
    What is Community Issues Management (CIM)?
    CIM is a powerful web-based collaborative management system to help organizations, networks, and community partnerships enhance collaborative decision-making and action
  • 14. Why a Collaborative Tool?
    complex issues, complex data, limited resources
    engagement of multiple citizens, partners, organizations
  • 15. Issue Notebook
    Manage local collaborative - issue description, contact information,
    keywords, etc…
  • 16. Issue Notebook
    Issue Notebooks help organizations
    frame and manage the issues

  • 17. Local Data
  • 18. Three Ways to Integrate
    Local and Regional Data
    Automated Upload of GIS Data Layers
    Automated Upload of Tabular Data
    Existing geography (State, County, City, ZIP Code)
    Address matching (Geocoding Addresses)
    Map coordinates (latitude and longitude)
    You Add Tool - Draw an Area, Point or Line
  • 19. 2. Tabular Data Upload
    Augment local and regional
    GIS and IT capacity
  • 20. 3. You Add Tool - Draw an Area
    Add Attributes about the Area
  • 21. 3. You Add Tool - Draw a Point
    Add Attributes about the Point
  • 22. CO Food Assessment Framework
    Sponsored by the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment
    Funding is provided through a cooperative agreement with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, ARRA grant number FOA#90101ARRA09
    Partnership between LiveWell Colorado and food systems consultants
    One of several goals to advance healthy food systems and farm to school efforts in CO
  • 23. Goals of the CO FAF:
    Identify and collect existing food systems indicators across food production, processing, distribution, and access
    Identify and collect existing community food assessment tools, data, and lessons learned from across Colorado
    Identify and propose an interactive, on-line data management system that includes comprehensive indicators, highlights community data and learning, and facilitates peer networking
    Track the health of the state’s food system over time
    CO Food Assessment Framework
  • 24.
  • 25.
  • 26. Break-Out Process
    Worksheet: Define a hypothetical goal and focus
    Review Included Indicators
    Discuss what data helps address your question
    Take note of what is missing
  • 27. Group Work: Exploring the Tools
    Using the Tool:
    What data is available to address your issue?
    What does it tell us?
    What reports and maps can you create?
    What indicators might be missing?
    Other Discussion:
    Would such a national platform support your work?
    Would you use it? Who would?
    What would facilitate you using it?
