San Francisco Planning

Role: Ethnographic Research, Data Visualization, Design, Development
Teams: Stae, OpenBox, San Francisco Department of Planning

The goal of this project is to look at the impact and benefits of parklets using a people-centric and data-driven approach. The City of San Francisco has a specific interest in public space as it relates to equity, diversity, and inclusion. We want to understand how public spaces reflect and influence neighborhood diversity, so future decisions regarding mobility and land use can lead to more equitable and inclusive human outcomes. This data story was developed by mixing together quantitative and qualitative research methods to reveal patterns and insights and presented in a more engaging and interactive way versus the static PDFs the city normally produces.

In this collaboration I worked alongside OpenBox and the San Francisco Planning department in researching, designing, coding, and presenting this unique data story.
