Our mission at mySidewalk is to empower the public and city leaders with the most complete, clear, and real-time understanding of our communities so we can improve and innovate together. That public includes the nearly one in five Americans with a disability. Learn how we are making the data shared in our reports and dashboards accessible to everyone.
At mySidewalk, we know that old habits can be hard to break, especially when it comes to innovating in your field and trying new things. In this article, we break down the phenomenon we like to call “Data Disposophobia”--the inability to let go of data we don’t need in order to focus on the data that will make the most compelling story.
Our dashboards and reports help you engage your audience and tell the story of your community’s data. We’re excited to announce the addition of a great storytelling tool to complement your visualizations, imagery, and copy. Now you can embed videos from Youtube, Vimeo, and DailyMotion right into your data story.
To get you started, we have 4 great ways you can incorporate videos to tell your story!
The Data Storytellers at mySidewalk are back at it, this time with a map that helps you quickly identify where residents without vehicles face larger barriers to transportation - using just two key variables: households without vehicles and the EPA’s Walkability Index. This post teaches you how to build it in 10 minutes or less.
