What they do
As a nonprofit research group, Headwaters Economics collects and analyzes data on land use issues in the U.S. They’ve worked on projects like proving the economic value of protected public lands, and analyzing how vulnerable different communities are to climate change. Headwaters’ underlying belief is that data can empower public and private agencies to make smarter and more informed decisions about the value of land.
What our partnership does
Headwaters collects extremely granular data to tell stories about land use and climate change in the U.S. Working with Tableau Foundation, they’ve been able to translate that data into visualizations that clearly articulate the aims of their research and advocate for action.
Neighborhoods at Risk
Built in Tableau, Headwaters' Neighborhoods at Risk tool enables cities to view every neighborhood's vulnerability to climate change—and take action to protect their communities.
