Launch Event

February 16, 2017

 

Introducing the Urban Data Platform from Kinder Institute on Vimeo.

UDP proclamationThe Urban Data Platform officially launched February 16, 2017 with a rollout event that was a great success, further augmented by the Mayor's Office proclaiming the day as "Urban Data Platform Day!"  

We had several distinguished guest speakers, including Martin O'Malley, senior fellow of MetroLab Network, 61st Governor of Maryland (2007-2015) and 47th Mayor of Baltimore (1999-2007).

Under the leadership of Statistics Professor Dr. Kathy Ensor, the Urban Data Platform's current projects, tools and curated data were showcased to a savvy audience of data science lovers. Accomplishments like this are never achieved alone, so a special thank you to the Urban Data Platform team for their collective efforts in bringing this project to fruition. 

Feedback can be provided in our UDP survey.
