Data Analytics Lab Sessions
Some topics are more effectively communicated by seeing/viewing software in action and being able to ask questions about operations or specific data structures. Weekly Web-based lab sessions are normally conducted at 3:00 p.m. on Tuesdays. Connectively details and related information are provided at Web session details.

Weekly Lab sessions are focused on ... how to improve our ability to understand where we are ... and where we are going? How can we use data to better understand patterns, where and how change will occur ... and how change will impact us? Have we got the best data to answer the right questions?

These sessions last less an one hour or less. The sessions also offer offer an open structure/support (see below) and discussion forum with like-minded users.

Data Analytics Blog
The Data Analytics Blog is focused on the development, integration and use of geographic-demographic-economic data to help stakeholders better understand where we are now; the what, when and where things will change in the future; and how change might impact us.
