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.
Austin bustles with live music, delicious food and beautiful green space, but what really makes Austin stand out is its people with their “can do” attitude, eagerness to solve challenges and strong commitment to community. In our work at the City of Austin, we are always looking to understand and improve the lives of our community and constantly seek innovative ways to do so.
As Detroit’s oldest neighborhood, the history of Corktown speaks for itself. The area has always been rich in its diversity of businesses and residents as well as offering a strong artistic and entrepreneurial spirit. These characteristics have made Corktown an attractive place to live, work, and play, which is one of the reasons Ford Motor Company selected the Michigan Central Station as the location for its new mobility campus, where employees will determine the future of the auto industry.
As the City of Indianapolis works to design a mobility network that creates better options for everyone, they are committed to reflecting these values of hospitality and connection.

We are all on a journey. A journey for a better tomorrow where greenhouse emissions are not challenging our planet. Where traffic jams and car crashes are a thing of the past. And where lost time in traffic now becomes time for new experiences.
Smart technology solutions are connecting citizens to their communities in new ways. They’re helping to solve problems that range from water shortages to public safety. By using Internet of Things (IoT) technology, we’re helping to create cities that are safer, more efficient, and sustainable for the future.

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.

No two cities are the same. Therefore, there is no fixed rule to go about planning a city. A right combination of knowledgeable planners/designers supported by experienced locals with meaningful stories can positively transform a city. Community involvement in the transformation of a city also creates an effective sense of inclusivity and belonging to the city.
