The Massive Data Institute at Georgetown’s McCourt School of Public Policy is hosting a data challenge inviting undergraduate and graduate students and early-career professionals to create or improve indicators involving green space to better understand and measure community impact. Participants will access various data sources on our Redivis platform in individual or team notebooks to transform green space data into community indicators.
When: February 1-28, 2023
Where: The data challenge is entirely virtual, with information and rules of the challenge available on this website. Updates will be posted on our challenge website and emailed to registered participants.
Who you are: We welcome any participants over age 18, especially undergraduate students, graduate students, and early professional data scientists. Analysts based in academic institutions, government statistical offices, think tanks and policy labs, and community organizations are encouraged to participate.
What topics you can explore: Participants can analyze green space data in tandem with various other datasets that include health, environment, and/or public safety data.
