Urban Data – at your fingertips

Urban Data – at your fingertips

Data sketching algorithms with the Sustain project allow us to separate information from the data. This facilitates coping with voluminous data.
US Census Data

US Census Data

Data from the US Census Survey now available within Sustain. The data covers several features at the block-level for the past 4 decades.

Air Quality Dataset

Air Quality Dataset

Air quality data from the Environmental Protection Agency now available within sustain. This includes data collected at hourly intervals from monitoring locations in the United States from 1980.

National Land Cover Database

National Land Cover Database

The National Land Cover Database for the conterminous United States now available within Sustain. The NLCD from USGS represents land cover as 16 thematic classes.

The Sustain project focuses on harnessing the data revolution in geo-sciences. In particular, the project will:

  • Federate data stored within different administrative domains. The data itself may be stored in diverse encoding formats using a variety of storage frameworks.
  • Perform data imputations at diverse spatiotemporal scopes.

A key goal of the Sustain effort to harness the wealth of information available in this data by supporting a rich set of data exploration, discovery, visualization, and model validation operators.
