Workspace is the center for organization and team collaboration. Workspace is the mission control to access all Urban SDK platform features including:

  • Insights - Traffic data analytics and reporting

  • Event Analysis - Create before and after roadway event analysis reports

  • Studio - Create, style and share maps

  • Data Hub - Create, share and download geocoded datasets

  • Dashboard Builder - Create business intelligence dashboards

  • Portfolio - Publish a branded website of all of your work

You must first sign in to access any workspace. Platform features are based on your current license. Contact support to learn more about additional platform features.


Workspace is your mission control. It organizes all information you or your team create or upload across the entire platform.

Every user starts with a private Personal Workspace. Users must be invited to join a Shared Workspace to access shared information.

1. Personal Workspace

The personal workspace is private to each user. It allows you to work on project files, reports or upload files that are not intended to be shared across your entire team, department or client base.

2. Shared Workspace

Users must be invited to join a Shared Workspace. Users can join an unlimited number of Shared Workspaces.

The shared workspace is intended to enable every user access to anything created or uploaded to the platform. It makes it easier to organize projects, reports and share information across the team in one place.
