Abstract: In the city of Rochester, data transparency is essential for helping citizens to shape the future of their community. In a digital age, however, traditional methods of providing information about the important work of these entities lack the reach and impact of more modern forms of visual communication. This presentation will highlight efforts of the city of Rochester to improve transparency by migrating traditional data sources into ArcGIS “story maps” and dynamic mapping applications, enabling citizens to rapidly access and consume critical information about development activities impacting their communities.

Pam Delaney, GISP, has been working at the City of Rochester for 13 years, and for the past 8 years she has worked in Neighborhood & Business Development as a Senior GIS Analyst. In recent years, Pam has worked to build the NBD Map Gallery in an effort to make the Department more transparent, improved data collection processes throughout NBD, and worked on Strategic Projects such as the launch of the Building Blocks platform.
