Clinton Johnson is the Social Justice/Racial Equity Lead at Esri and an advocate for using GIS and visualization tools to highlight social challenges and opportunities for improvement. Clinton and Deepak Puri, The Democracy Labs, explore the kinds of data that can make a difference in understanding a problem and put it in a form that can lead to action. Clinton and Deepak share a deep appreciation for geospatial technology and the power of GIS to drill down to a neighborhood level to help organizations better allocate resources.

Clinton and Deepak talk about:

  • Driving community engagement with a data-driven approach
  • GIS tools to determine the best use of limited resources 
  • Need for extensive data points that can be used to achieve the granularity needed to identify problems
  • Role of visualization to identify hidden gaps in services and opportunities
