Open Data City

A recent artilce on The Atlantics on "The Neighborhood Data Portal Every City Needs" highlights the need for visualizing urban data. Every city should have such open data portal for a better understanding and communicating the linkage between public health, land use, economics, education, crime, transportation and housing.
"Los Angeles has recently done just this, rolling out a web tool as part of its Plan for a Healthy Los Angeles that maps a tremendous number of metrics about life in the region, at both the city and neighborhood scales. "
