Using location data for better parks
This post is inspired by a conversation with Dr. Jamie Saxon, a Postdoctoral Scholar at the Center for Data and Computing of the University of Chicago. Jamie was originally trained as a particle physicist but made the professional transition to focus on cities because he wanted to better maximize the information gained across his career. We asked Jamie to share his thoughts on how location data is used in the public sector and the different ways it can help create better public parks. This is what we heard.
