As we pointed out in the Naming Scheme post, we gave each DataWell a "friendly" name.   Why?

  • To honor local residents and
  • As a way to "friend" DWs around the City.

And why would you want to be "friends" with a DataWell?

  • To track the hyperlocalized KNIs (Key Neighborhood Indicators) through a particular DW's website.
  • For wayfinding
  • For tracking hyperlocal offers and postings
  • For checkpointing

If you read "An NYCDataWell Story", you'll see how the Urbina family "friends" DWs throughout the City.  To track what's happening near work, school, the community center, and Abuela's nursing home.

As we keep exploring scenarios in this section of the site, you'll see how the Befriending concept plays a crucial part in the NYCDataWell proposition.
