As a local government, it falls on you to ensure to effectively manage your jurisdictions’ land resources. To balance the preservation of our natural resources with targeted urban planning and development for the benefit of citizen’s well-being and the economy.
The U.S. population is continuing to grow, with citizens expecting local governments to address their social, economic, and health needs efficiently through town and city planning initiatives.
Below we highlight how boundaries data from ATTOM Data Solutions can be used to enhance government analytics for land-use planning initiatives.
An Introduction to Using Boundaries Data to Enhance Data Analytics in the Government Sector for Land-Use Planning
Data-driven choices about land-use are key to crafting policy and to fuel evidence-based land-planning. With boundaries data, you can analyze how to best use current land resources and meet land-use planning goals, such as preventing land-use conflicts, conserving the natural environment, and addressing the needs of those living within your jurisdiction.
Boundaries data can be used to inform and guide policy, helping you to address issues involving land-use planning, quickly assess the need for interventions through new infrastructure and transportation links, and compare intra- and inter-urban performance of different urban areas.
How Government Use of Big Data Can Unearth the Need for Infrastructure
Assessing the viability of and need for future development projects is key to helping you ensure you meet the aims of policy and needs of your constituents.
ATTOM’s boundaries data can also be used to enhance city and government analytics, helping you to accurately identify target areas for community developments. This data can also be used to assess the need for policy interventions, such as the need for new transportation networks or commercial infrastructure to meet the economic and mobility needs of a growing city population.
For example, our area and neighborhood data can be used to address where your constituents have the most need for suitable schools, libraries, and health centers.
This data highlights 502 metros, 328,356 residential subdivisions, and 40,878 neighborhood boundaries by longitude and latitude – giving you quick insights into the makeup and needs of your city and its neighborhoods.
Moreover, this data can also be used to gain insights into the ideal areas to target for the development of ecological zoning to help conserve land and animal habitats.
Improve Benchmarking with More Comprehensive Government Data
Moreover, cities and towns can easily be compared and benchmarked to analyze intra- and inter-urban performance with boundaries data.
The transparency offered with boundaries data enables you to quickly and accurately assess morphology and sustainability of your jurisdiction in comparison to other areas. Assess gaps in infrastructure aimed at meeting the social and economic needs of residents in comparison to other areas across the U.S.
What ATTOM’s Boundaries Data Can Offer Your Government Data Analysis
We offer comprehensive boundaries data on 155 million U.S. properties, providing: 99% population coverage, 7,200 data fields, and a 9TB warehouse.
Moreover, our Enterprise Data Management Program (EDMP) validates, standardizes, and enhances real estate and demographic data, ensuring our data goes through a rigorous 20-step process to ensure comprehensiveness and accuracy.
One of the most popular delivery choices for our boundaries data is our Property Data API (Application Program Interface) which consolidates our neighbourhood, boundaries, analytics, and property data. Our real estate API is designed to consolidate a large volume of realty data for every geographical area in the U.S.
Comprehensive boundaries data can help you to more intricately understand and better manage planning and development within cities. Extensive boundaries data on the parameters and key features of each city, delivered in real time, helps to increase transparency: enabling you to quickly gain insights into gaps in current policy and the infrastructure needed to meet the needs of citizens.
Ensure Land-Use Planning Policy Decisions are Informed by Accurate Data
As a government body specializing in land-use planning, accurate boundaries data can be integral to helping you efficiently analyze the workings of urban areas and plan future projects. Boundaries data can enhance decision making and policy creation – providing greater transparency and accuracy to government officials.
