BoardStat was designed with community boards for community boards. BoardStat is a highly interactive tool for community boards that empowers users to discover issues and trends within their district’s boundaries. BoardStat empowers board staff and members to gain timely insights into NYC 311 data, and is furthering the Manhattan Borough President Gale A. Brewers’ long standing goal of making government transparent, reactive, and moving beyond open data access to meaningful use.
In collaboration with Manhattan’s community board district managers, board members, CUNY Service Corps, Microsoft Civic, and BetaNYC, we have developed a number of data dashboards that to provide a variety of summaries, graphs, and maps of NYC 311 service request data. This tool pulls directly from NYC’s open data portal and turns the city’s open data into a decision making tool.
