At roughly 400 square miles, Indianapolis is one of the largest cities in the United States. That’s about the same land area as San Francisco, Boston, Detroit, Miami, and Pittsburgh combined. This large geographic space can lead to tensions when thinking about all of the different neighborhoods and environments where a particular mobility solution might be best fit. Over the course of the Explore Phase, we brought the data science power of Ford Mobility to bear by conducting a detailed neighborhood segmentation and accessibility simulation to try to begin to better understand the diversity of environments and people across Indianapolis.

At Spatial we have spent the last few years developing technologies that have allowed us to listen to and understand communities and their potential needs. We use the rich resource of social media, machine learning techniques, and ethnography practices to create “Geosocial Data” which allows us to understand cities and neighborhoods much faster and more comprehensively than demographic or survey data has allowed in the past.

Community involvement in the transformation of a city also creates an effective sense of inclusivity and belonging to the city.
