Stories From the Field
Creators of data warehouses, data explorers, and data dashboards encounter several challenges when it comes to the issue of equity. We encourage the use of practices that invite community members to help contextualize data, share their personal stories, and amplify community solutions. Thus sharing the ways that you use the data to tell your story and the role of local and regional food systems is critical to this project. This space provides “stories from the field” – capturing snapshots of ways in which various stakeholders have used these data and why data was important to telling their story.
