Informing Decisions Through Citizen Engagement and Data
Engaging citizens into policy decisions is difficult. Having informed conversations is challenging. Making sense of input and feedback and integrating it with existing information and data is even more difficult. It’s expensive, it’s time consuming, and it’s tough. The world of demographic and socioeconomic data is chaotic. It includes hundreds of sources, dozens of different reporting geographies, and hours of compilation. Fortunately, we can help organizations get that time back.
Project pages and dashboards let you bring people together around a powerful narrative. We provide rich visualizations and findings to share, and make sure the data stays fresh.
Charts & Graphs
A simple pie graph can convey more than a paragraph of text ever could—and our tool generates these types of graphics for you. Embed, download, and share the maps, charts and graphs we’ve created for you.
We make it easy to map every indicator and share the results with stakeholders, so they can explore the areas where they’re most invested.
Visualize issues that matter in your community: jobs, safety, neighbourhoods, transportation, and more.
Make Confident Decisions
Simply choose an indicator from the library, apply a location, and see that data applied to your project. Being able to communicate the data can be the most important part of your work. By using Civicly, you can tell a data-driven story through shareable links or simply by downloading a raw data report.
& Inform Conversations
Getting input from citizens and making sense of the feedback is difficult. We’ve realized, however, that engaging with residents is only one piece of the puzzle. In order for leaders to make more informed decisions, they need to be able to combine citizen feedback with quantitative information (AKA data/indicators).
Get Access to Civicly's Pre-Loaded Data Library
With a robust (and growing!) set of indicators in the Civicly Library, you have full access to data that would normally take hours to compile.
Add points, lines, and polygons. Upload the your own data and apply it to neighbourhoods, regions, parks, plan areas, you name it.
