{ Preliminary Description }

Our session will describe Emerson Collective (EC)'s process as to how we arrived at the product concept for the “Data Repo”, outline several use cases this platform allows for, and provide a demo of the tool with an NYC-relevant example.

This session will appeal to open data administrators, product managers, and developers who are interested in not just making data open and available, but usable for users downstream.

The Data Repo is more than a code repository or data portal—it is an environment where users can facilitate their entire research and data lifecycle. The Data Repo provides an environment to:
  • Work directly with up-to-date data from the cloud
  • Share notebooks to (1) collaborate with other researchers within your organization, or (2) disseminate findings to other researchers outside your organization
  • Generate visualizations and operationalize insights for other users within their organization (ex. a comms team)
  • Post content to share out with the wider research community
  • Upskill and learn common coding practices for data retrieval, processing, and publishing
