Nottingham Insight

Nottingham city council created comprehensive online area profiles through a collaborative effort with partner organisations like the local NHS and police. This includes a powerful online mapping tool which features a plethora of statistics on demographics, crime, economy and deprivation (IMD score) at ward level as well as mapping features from streetlights to youth centres and important planning zones.

According to a Local Government Association report this led to demonstrable savings in time of up to £460,000 a year due to less time needed for research and analysing evidence for decision making, as well as enabling more efficient targeting.

Here’s an example – I’ve mapped CCTV locations onto deprivation levels.
