Solving real world problems with data. 

What is Chattalytics?

Chattalytics is a program to proactively use data instead of reactively. Using the methods and tools of data science, the city will identify projects that help solve real world problems with data. 


Analytics is an approach that:

  • uses data to generate new insights into city services and the needs they serve
  • applies these insights to improve service delivery
  • helps departments work smarter – using existing data sources and in-house technology to achieve better results with existing resources
