“Trust God,” is the new city manager’s mantra. “Everybody else has to bring data.” States and localities are beginning to amass huge amounts of structured and unstructured data, but each community has a slightly different approach, based on its organization and where it is on the journey from warehousing, an early collection step, to visualization and analysis. This panel offers an overview of what’s possible with data and what isn’t; identifies low-hanging fruit for resource strapped local governments and citizen groups; and examines key concerns about cybersecurity and privacy rights.
