About this project…
The goal of this project is to help IFSSA better understand the community it serves by visualizing where they live now, and where potential clients and supporters may come from in the future. This data will play an immediate role in helping us determine a location for a new southside location.
Our southside office is at the end of its life. It needs serious structural work to remain viable for our needs.
The southside location presently does not adequately serve our staff’s need for space, security or privacy.
We have been approached by a buyer interested in the location.
What we hope to visualize
Where clients live
Isolate clients based on which services and locations they use. Eg north office vs south office, domestic violence or food security
Chart shifts is use over the last 3 years and where they are coming from
Show correlations if any between family size and addresses
Show where long-term clients live? Are they clustered or dispersed?
Show where other food depots or related services are in the city to make it easier to visualize service deserts.
Show income levels in different neighbourhoods
Identify transit access (both present as well as future LRT)
Identify retail/lite-industrial vacancy/ property values/ commercial lease rates
Show proximity to mosques, cultural centers
Show cultural/spiritual demographic data related to neighbourhoods
Be able to score potential locations based on their…
