Visit the new NYC Business Atlas, an interactive map launched by DoITT, the Mayor’s Office of Data Analytics, and the Departments of Small Business Services. This new tool helps small businesses better understand the economic conditions in their neighborhoods by combining information on population demographics with business filings, tax receipts, and pedestrian activity. Available at maps.nyc.gov/businessatlas/ – the Business Atlas enables local businesses to make better decisions about where to open their doors and how to operate.
According to NYC Chief Analytics Officer Mike Flowers: “This project is an extension of the City’s Open Data efforts. Data transparency means better information for those that live and work in our neighborhoods, and that means more than just raw numbers. The Business Atlas is an easy-to-use visualization that shows that you don’t need to be a data scientist to make good use of NYC data.”
