Jerry will share with us how the engineering work in the City of Vancouver is aligned to advance the City's overall corporate goals with examples of how they use data to plan, design and evaluate all of their work, especially when looking at transportation projects - hello bike lanes! He will look at how essential data has become in decision making - especially at the Council table - and what’s to come.
