In the spring of 2017, Paul Waddell taught an Urban Data Science Workshop that emerged from student interest in the Fall 2016 Urban Informatics and Visualization course for an opportunity to continue developing their skills, and from an active research grant from the MacArthur Foundation to bring the tools of Data Science into the domain of Urban Planning. The thematic focus of this workshop was on housing affordability. We presented the results of the workshop in a final review on May 12, 2017. The presentation is embedded below. We had around 60 people attending the final review from state, regional, and local agencies as well as the private sector and academia. During the summer, we will be launching a full interactive website for this work, and developing a series of research papers for publication.
