Good Jobs NY
Infographics & Maps
- Software Used Adobe Creative Suite, Arc GIS
Good Jobs New York is a non-profit organization working to promote government accountability for economic incentives granted to large corporations. Using public data, I created maps of the subsidy allocations granted by the New York City Economic Development Corporation in all five boroughs. I combined these maps with graphic information to create “Subsidy Snapshots.” These brochures made data accessible to Community Boards throughout the city, allowing residents to get involved in the process and workforce development professionals to locate potential employers. I also analyzed each borough and community board individually in order to point out disparities in the allocation of subsidies by borough and project type. To better explain the process and power structure of subsidy allocation, we developed an organizational chart that serves as a tool for citizens to take action in the allocation process.
