"Nashville Mayor Megan Barry has launched an interactive data map, called NashView, that the public can use to see information about a number of government-provided services," reports Katie Pyzyk.

"NashView offers visualizations using markers and a wide variety of maps, as well as options to sort by Metro Council district, school district, and zip code," according to the press release announcing the new data platform. "Residents can track the number, concentration and other traits of various occurrences in their neighborhoods and around the city – without special software, skills or access."
