Thursday 11/17/2022

Duration: 60 min
For this month’s Replica Community Technical webinar we are highlighting ways our customers have leveraged Replica data when submitting for RFPs and grant applications. We will highlight real-world examples of how Replica data is being used to impact the communities where we live and work.

About the Webinar

Cities are in the midst of unprecedented transformation. Historic levels of investment are flowing to local governments to recover from the pandemic, adapt to the “new normal,” and make places more equitable, sustainable, and livable.

Whether you’re working to improve your city’s transportation system, revitalize your downtown core, forecast tax revenues, boost emergency preparedness, understand the housing needs of your community, or compete for federal funding, Replica’s insights can help you see your city better, respond to the ever-changing needs of your residents, monitor impact of your interventions, and forecast what’s to come.
In this webinar we discussed:
  • How cities are adapting to demographic changes
  • Deep dive on federal funding available to help reconnect cities thrive
  • Use cases for how cities have used data to make smarter planning and financing decisions.

Public policy leaders, state and local government agencies, transportation planners, consulting firms, private companies, Reconnecting Communities Pilot applicants, and community advocates.


Replica provides data that empowers more informed, impactful decisions about the built environment. Our mission is to organize the world’s information about the built environment. In this webinar we featured the following speakers:
