Re: Community and neighborhood indicators
- We have a local/regional community indicators project here in Western New York - the greater Rochester, NY area, which consists of a seven county area. It's called ACT Rochester and the web address is http://www.actrochester.org I agree that there's an immense amount of potential usefulness with the community indicators projects and find the area quite exciting myself.

>>I'm excited about the potential of community indicators projects too. A few months ago, I posted MAPC Data Day as an event for NetSquared Boston, a nonprofit technology meetup ( http://www.meetup.com/net2boston/events/44980612/). I am interested in posting future events related to community indicators projects there too. The Knight Foundation has supported environmental justice nonprofits in working with data about local pollution ( http://knightfoundation.org/blogs/knightblog/2012/2/20/ideas-you-can-ste al-community-information-projects-worked/). I'd like to see more projects in which nonprofits use, collect and/or share community data.>>
