This project focused on generating a spatial data warehouse to aid in research for the Maryvale Revitalization Project at Arizona State University (ASU). The Watts College of Public Service and Community Solutions is organizing an Urban Solutions Design Studio focused on the Maryvale neighborhood in West Phoenix. This revitalization project focuses on rehabilitating and enhancing the Maryvale neighborhood by researching cultural, social, and economic opportunities that could benefit the area. In response to this collaborative effort, we focused our project on compiling social, economic, and demographic information related to Maryvale to develop an efficient and organized spatial data warehouse. Census data, demographic data, and other population-level data were matched with neighborhood administrative boundaries for spatial analysis. We highlight lessons learned during this effort.
