About the Probable Futures data community

The Probable Futures data community is a Slack group open to anyone who is using, or interested in using, Probable Futures maps and data to connect and share ideas or work they create using the maps and data. People in the group have used Probable Futures data for analysis, visualization, and integrations with new or existing software applications. 

The group is a convenient way to meet others who are using or considering using Probable Futures maps and data. It is also a good way to connect directly with members of the Probable Futures team who develop and maintain the Probable Futures public platform and other maps-related tools. 

There are channels to discuss using Probable Futures Pro, the Probable Futures developer resources and API, the Probable Futures maps, and more. 

Anyone is welcome to use the Probable Futures Pro and the Probable Futures API but registration is requested. To learn more about these tools, please see the FAQ.

What are the Probable Futures developer resources?

The Probable Futures developer resources are documentation and tools that software developers can use to create applications, platforms, reports, articles, and anything else they can imagine with Probable Futures data and maps. These resources include the Probable Futures API, all Probable Futures maps (Mapbox styles and tilesets), and the raw data for download. Using these resources, anyone is free to integrate Probable Futures data or maps. Learn more about Probable Futures integrations options.

What is expected of people in the data community?
