New York City agencies create and publish a huge volume of geospatial data about land use, emergency preparedness, and public health.  We use Geographic information Systems (GIS), computer-based tools to store, visualize, and analyze this geographic data.  This panel will review publicly-available tools and data sets, discuss the state of GIS technology in the city, and consider how the City uses geospatial data to serve NYC residents.  Join this conversation with agency GIS leaders about new maps & tools, geospatial data, and initiatives for 2022.
