Harvard Kennedy School’s Ash Center for Democratic Governance and Innovation released Data-Smart City Solutions. The database describes itself as:

This searchable database indexes visual and geospatial solutions to critical urban problems. Examples span the city, county, state, and federal levels, and feature a wide variety of interventions and initiatives, including maps, data visualizations, and dashboards. Searchable by a project's end goal, issue area and type of intervention, the database is a resource hub for civic leaders seeking models for replication and inspiration about how visual tools can unlock data-driven insights.

Examples include NYC Citi Bike Visualization, San Francisco Urban Forest Map, Urban Displacement Map, Houston/Miami Harvey Rescue Site

You can filter maps by Issue Area, Type, Jurisdiction Type, Population, Audience, and Outcome.
