Leveraging the Potential of Spatial Data in Artistic Programming

Spatial data--information that relates to or identifies a specific geographic location--are frequently used by the corporate and public sectors to make management decisions, be it to improve shipping logistics or to create a marketing campaign. They can also be an asset for arts organizations seeking to maximize program impact. To better understand how spatial data analysis can help arts organizations, AMTLab presents Using Spatial Data to Advance Programming Missions, the latest white paper in its publication series on management. The paper provides a step-by-step exploration of the use of GIS software to conduct a site desirability study for public art projects in the City of Pittsburgh.
