After years of anticipation, a mystery dataset [UPDATE: it's 911 fire & EMS dispatch data] has been released on our open data portal WPRDC! This dataset will give you a window into safety issues in your community.

We'll start with a 10 minute intro and orientation to the data--what's there, what's not, and how to access documentation. Then we'll have open time for you to play with the data. Make a map, track trends over time, and more! How can your community learn from this dataset?

Bring a laptop with your data analysis platform of choice: R, Python, Tableau, QGIS, a webmapping service like Carto, or even just Excel!
