Application Analysis

An analysis tool to help Boards use information from previous applications when making decisions.

The application analysis tool will visualize existing data by comparing multiple data sets. For example, crossing liquor licenses applications’ data with 311 noise complaints, to guide the allocation of future liquor licenses. Or finding common application types from the past year, in order to identify land use patterns in the district.

Boards already have access to past applications’ data. The application analysis tool will help Boards use this valuable resource and guide their future work, by identifying and prioritizing topics of interest in the district.

Available tools can help District Managers get started. For example, see Google Fusion Tables, QGIS and CartoDB.
