Accessing and Using Food Data to Support Collaborative Policy Decisions - PowerPoint Presentation

  1. 1. Accessing and Using Food Data to Support Collaborative Policy Decisions<br />Center for Applied Research and Environmental Systems (CARES) - Columbia, MO<br />Center for Systems Integration - Denver, CO<br />Community Initiatives - Columbia, MO<br />WPM Consulting - Boulder, CO<br />LiveWell Colorado - Denver, CO<br />
  2. 2. Session Goals<br />Demonstrate web based interactive mapping and reporting tools – accessing over 7000 publically available national source data layers<br />Learn how other states are developing tools to arm both the state and communities to better understand the story of their food system<br />Identify ways that mapping and reporting can be used to support collaboration and advance policy dialogue<br />Discuss what else we need to advance our efforts! <br />
  3. 3. Session Overview<br />Group Introductions<br />Introduction to CARES <br />CARES data management platforms<br />Overview of the Colorado Food Assessment Framework<br />Food Security, Resiliency & Access Module<br />Break-Out Discussions<br />Explore how and why to use data to understand and address issues of food access<br />Group Discussion<br />How are the tools working? What else might advance your work? <br />
  4. 4. Interactive Mapping<br />Overlaying Local and National Data<br />Points – hospitals, social services<br />Areas– neighborhoods, cities, counties<br />Lines – Roads, paths, trails <br />Networks – Public transportation<br />Imagery – Satellite, Aerial images<br />Spatial Analysis – Proximity, buffer<br />Mapping is a representation of the real world…<br />We may tell a better story by overlaying more data…<br />
  5. 5. Public Good Components:<br />Mapping and Reporting<br /><br />
  6. 6. CARES Core Engine: Public Good Mapping<br />All public data from all CARES contracts are housed in one national “Commons” Engine <br />to benefit all communities<br />
  7. 7. Multiple Levels of Geography…<br />CARES provides free access to the <br />CARES Mapping Engine <br />
  8. 8. Dynamic Reports<br />
  9. 9. Compare Across Multiple Regions<br />
  10. 10. Report Output<br />CARES provides free access to the <br />CARES Reporting Engine <br />
  11. 11. Custom Application Components:<br />National Collaborative Management Systems (NCMS)<br />
  12. 12. National Collaborative Management Systems<br />Are Built on the Public Good Engine<br />
  13. 13. An Example NCMS<br />What is Community Issues Management (CIM)?<br />CIM is a powerful web-based collaborative management system to help organizations, networks, and community partnerships enhance collaborative decision-making and action<br />
  14. 14. Why a Collaborative Tool?<br />complex issues, complex data, limited resources<br />engagement of multiple citizens, partners, organizations<br />
  15. 15. Issue Notebook<br />Manage local collaborative - issue description, contact information,<br />keywords, etc… <br />
  16. 16. Issue Notebook<br />Issue Notebooks help organizations <br />frame and manage the issues<br />Upload or <br />Hyperlink to<br />
  17. 17. Local Data <br />Integration<br />
  18. 18. Three Ways to Integrate <br />Local and Regional Data<br />Automated Upload of GIS Data Layers<br />Automated Upload of Tabular Data <br />Existing geography (State, County, City, ZIP Code)<br />Address matching (Geocoding Addresses)<br />Map coordinates (latitude and longitude)<br />You Add Tool - Draw an Area, Point or Line<br />
  19. 19. 2. Tabular Data Upload<br />Augment local and regional <br />GIS and IT capacity<br />
  20. 20. 3. You Add Tool - Draw an Area<br />Add Attributes about the Area<br />
  21. 21. 3. You Add Tool - Draw a Point<br />Add Attributes about the Point<br />
  22. 22. CO Food Assessment Framework<br />Sponsored by the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment <br />Funding is provided through a cooperative agreement with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, ARRA grant number FOA#90101ARRA09<br />Partnership between LiveWell Colorado and food systems consultants<br />One of several goals to advance healthy food systems and farm to school efforts in CO<br />
  23. 23. Goals of the CO FAF:<br />Identify and collect existing food systems indicators across food production, processing, distribution, and access<br />Identify and collect existing community food assessment tools, data, and lessons learned from across Colorado<br />Identify and propose an interactive, on-line data management system that includes comprehensive indicators, highlights community data and learning, and facilitates peer networking<br />Track the health of the state’s food system over time<br />CO Food Assessment Framework<br />

  26. 26. Break-Out Process<br />Worksheet: Define a hypothetical goal and focus<br />Review Included Indicators<br />Discuss what data helps address your question<br />Take note of what is missing<br />
  27. 27. Group Work: Exploring the Tools<br />Using the Tool:<br />What data is available to address your issue?<br />What does it tell us? <br />What reports and maps can you create? <br />What indicators might be missing?<br />Other Discussion:<br />Would such a national platform support your work?<br />Would you use it? Who would?<br />What would facilitate you using it?<br />
