For the past year, my team at BetaNYC has plowed through NYC’s open data and churned it into a useful dashboard and class!! WHOOHOO. Dashboards FTW!**

Now, BetaNYC is conducting research on how to make open data MORE useful to community boards / community groups. Ultimately, we will produce recommendations, an improved version of our epic open data curriculum, AND produce improvements to our community dashboard!

Can you spread the word and/or give us five mins to tell us your successes and/or data needs? https://beta.nyc/data_stories

Attached is a flyer to share with your communities and a few tweets/facebook language for your consideration.
