Urban Data Pioneers is a program that empowers teams of city employees and community members to work in teams to deeply understand questions through data analysis. UDP teams meet to identify a problem, ask questions, analyze data and produce a visual analytic report. The goal of Urban Data Pioneers is for teams to learn data analysis techniques together and inform the Mayor city leadership with analysis of data that leads to policy. If you are a community member, and want to join the UDP teams please complete this form.


Improve the use of data throughout the City of Tulsa. 


Urban Data Pioneers are the trailblazers within the City of Tulsa who lead the way in identifying best ways to utilize data, educating others, and delivering results based upon data.
