Cranbrook, BC (May 17, 2021) – Finding out how many people live in certain neighborhood in Cranbrook or how many people moved to this community last year is easy to find with just one click.
Our residents, business owners, potential investors and developers regularly have questions like these and we have compiled many of those answers from reliable, trusted sources in an easy to understand, visual format that puts the fun in data. The new public data portal can be found on Choose Cranbrook – the City’s economic development website at www.choosecranbrook.ca.
“Data is a great tool for innovation and development. This is our dashboard for our community and will help residents, stakeholders and City staff make informed and educated decisions,” says Darren Brewer , Business Development Officer with the City of Cranbrook. “This is an important first step for us to achieving open data.”
The City of Cranbrook secured the services of Ruby Industries, a Kelowna based data sciences start-up and creators of Cityviz.
“Investors, developers, entrepreneurs, economic development officers and public can now use Cityviz to gain insights into Cranbrook’s community profile, economic indicators as well as overlay existing businesses and facilities over demographic indicators on an interactive map,” says Izabela Bogdanovic of Ruby Industries Inc. “We appreciate the variety of business environments in which our communities operate, and we are dedicated to helping everyone grow and prosper. We are looking forward to a long and successful partnership with City of Cranbrook and are excited to be a part of its success and prosperity."
