Fresno Alcohol Map (FAM)

 

The Fresno Alcohol Map is a project of the Fresno Youth Council for Sustainable Communities (FYCSC). Using the data provided by California Department of Alcoholic and Beverage Control FYSCS was able obtain data for all locations in Fresno that are licensed for off-site alcohol sales..  During the councils research phase, they were stunned to see the amount of liquor stores that surrounded their schools and their fellow peers. The map consists of all Fresno Unified High Schools (blue pin drop) and is overlaid with liquor outlets that are in a 1 mile radius of each high school. This map below shows the density of liquor stores (red dots) for each high school. This map is a tool for people to use and educate others on the growing population of liquor stores.

FYSCS is guided by the philosophy that primary prevention is critical to addressing health disparities and inequities because it focuses on changes in the economic, social, cultural, and physical environments, which has proven to be the most effective way to stop illness and injury before they occur. Primary prevention aims to make changes in the community at the population level rather than the individual level, one person at a time. By taking this approach, we can positively effect change for many more people in Fresno with less effort and resources.

BusTracker

Bus Tracker is an award-winning tool for the Fresno community to report and track incidents on the FAX bus system.

The data collected from Bus Tracker informs the City of Fresno on ways the bus system can be improved. The project relies heavily on community-driven data, which is collected, sorted and displayed on an easy-to-use interactive map that's made available to the public on the official Web site. While the information is not directly tied to the Fresno Area Express, Fresno's metropolitan bus service, the information is provided as a report to that city department.

In Feb 2012, BusTracker won "coolest app" award at the State of California's Government Mobility Conference.
