Fernando Hernandez Leiva, Senior Analytics Developer, Centre for Advanced Computing, Queen’s University

Queen’s University is collaborating with the City of Kingston, Kingston Economic Development, and the Kingston and Area Association of Museums, Art Galleries and Historic Sites to create a data-driven decision-making tool that can support community planning and help measure municipal resilience to COVID 19. Improving community engagement using new, web-driven tools is one way to support better policy development and local democracy. Kingston In Focus ( is an online interactive dashboard that provides a range of indicators and allows for comparisons with federal and provincial indicators. Dashboard indicators are grouped by overarching themes of Local Economy, Employment, Community Health, Mobility, Environment, Housing, Cultural Heritage and Demographics. The dashboard also includes links to Kingston-centric research (i.e. dissertations and theses) related to dashboard themes. The dashboard will ultimately provide a platform of gathered data which will help to inform policy and strengthen Kingston’s ability to (re)build post-pandemic.
