Economic Development Corp

Presenter: Jiin Wen

Notes:

  • "Dark Data" is open data used for its original intended purpose but not reused for other purposes.
  • Grafitti-free-NYC driven off 311 open data
  • Last few years, between 10000-14000 closed incidents per year
  • Using routing to optimize these grafitti repairs: basic TSP algorithm but "modified by machine learning".

Dept of Education (office of sustainability)

Presenter: Peter Barker

Notes:

  • We're just getting started with GIS and ArcGIS
  • Serve 1m meals per day, second only to US Army

  • We don't identify as data people, or GIS people, we're just trying to solve these problems.
  • We are an aspiring GIS team.
  • There are gaps in our outreach, so GIS is helping us find them.

Notes:

  • Director of Citizen Science; Promoted their Masters program

  • Storage isn't the problem, it's accessing it and using it
  • Much higher quality Lidar data than ever before
  • Showed video of the semi-famous Dublin Lidar visualization
  • They're using Lidar to do a solar study: rooftops, ground shadows, etc.
  • They're pushing the results of their analysis BACK INTO open data so that it ca be repurposed and doesn't become "Dark Data"
  • Web app built with Cesium.

Dept of Finance

Presenter: Amanda Cruz

Notes:

  • Moving into 3D mapping
  • They want to start including more 3D aspects into property valuation: what floor you're on, what kinds of views you have, natural light vs shadows, so hopefully they can generate more tax revenue and more fairly.
  • Condos with a park view should be valuated higher than those without
  • 3D map visualization allows more work to be done from desk rather than the field
  • Attaching floor plans and other documents to 3D object
  • Using Cyclomedia so that inspectors can do more work, and cover more ground from their desks

Mayors Office, Environmental Remediation

Presenter: Maksim Kleban

Notes:

  • Built v2 of their "Speed" application:  "Speed 2.0"

  • Lacking real-time info, they're working on that
  • Search tool, address BBL, to find areas being targeted for remediation
  • This app is only for visualization
  • When they want to "analyze" the data, we export to CSV then bring into Excel to do our analysis.

MTA - Subways

Presenter: Simon Liu

Notes:

  • Described their linear referencing project
  • When an event would happen, there would often be internal disagreement as to exactly where the train is. Not good data. Some people using personal knowledge. Not data driven. Losing time while it's sorted out internally before action can take place.
  • NYC subways are still feeling very real effects of the fact that they started as three different companies.
  • Using this new data in order to optimize their vacuum trains. These run every night. Every bit of track is vacuumed 4x a year.
