TMT has a new website!

 
 

TMT has measured how our residents live, learn, work, enrich their lives, raise families, and care for themselves and others for more than two decades.

Truckee Meadows Tomorrow is excited to announce the launch of its new website:  http://www.truckeemeadowstomorrow.org/  Take a look at our new content and data visualization! It's a great way to learn more about the place you live.  Plus, now it's easier than ever to get involved by becoming a member, sponsoring an indicator or learning about TMT events. Some of the enhancements to the new site include:
  • Quality of life categories now on the home page — community indicators are just a click away
  • User-friendly, responsive, mobile platform — indicator data will display accurately on different screen sizes and devices
  • Site menu is always available — search the site for data or content
  • Interactive indicator data plots — faster response
  • Easier to download the data used to track the community’s well being from one location — saving yourself and your staff time and resources
  • Easier social media — news sharing
  • Responsive memberships — now on a 365-day subscription
  • Even better security —  full PCI-DSS compliance (Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard)
What’s coming?  A data mapping and visualization portal so you can learn about quality of life in your own neighborhood. TMT is looking for GIS volunteers willing to donate their time to assist in launching the new visualization tools by the end of this year.  Please contact TMT if you can help. We ask for your patience as we continue to migrate indicator data plots onto the new site.  But don’t wait—check out TMT’s new website today and then provide TMT with feedback (or like us on Facebook).  Enjoy!
