Information age planning

I thought this column in PlaNetizen was a great conversation starter about how planners need to change their thinking about data. Building on a report from the Brookings Institute, the authors build an argument for why "planners must become more sophisticated in solving data-ownership and sharing challenges." Big data are changing the realities of the planning world and we need to think about what that will mean in the future so we can build towards it now.
