Description

How do we address congested urban centers, pandemics, pollution, human-induced climate change, water crisis, racial inequities, affordable housing, severe drought, and other complex problems , as well as smaller interconnected ones like too many liquor stores in community?” These challenges threaten our collective future and require informed and thoughtful insights to properly tackle them. This paper introduces the Regional Data Platform (RDP), a geospatial solution for holistic planning across scales and jurisdictions to facilitate data collection, analyses, and informed decisions to address major problems, as well as day-to-day ones. The RDP utilizes “space” and “place” constructs through Geographic Information System (GIS) to enable a geographic approach and provide useful tools and its framework to collect, examine, and then recommend measures to mitigate and help resolve these major challenges (and not so major problems) that impact not only Southern California, but many parts of our world. For the Southern California Association of Governments (SCAG) region, this paper highlights the symbiotic relationship between local and regional planning, and the role of better data, tools, and government-to-government collaboration in addressing complicated problems and smaller ones under a common vision.

The Regional Data Platform: A Geospatial Solution that enhances Collaboration of Local and Regional Efforts to Tackle Pressing Issues
