The City of San Jose is using the Greenlink Equity Map (GEM) for their recent partnership with students' capstone projects at local universities working with the Climate Smart City GIS library.
This partnership will support the City by informing their zero emissions targets. They’re also studying asthma rate data and lack of internet access in San Jose to support its climate and equity goals across the city.
Planning, Building, and Code Enforcement at the City of San Jose is also using GEM to work on housing equity. Their team is studying the renter vs. owner, multi-family vs. single family indicators found in GEM to build community engagement and support their fair housing policy and programs.
For more information on how the City of San Jose is using GEM, contact Yael Kisel at Yael.Kisel@sanjoseca.gov.
