Open Data


What are the problems?

  • GIS
  • Citizens
  • Businesses
  • Legal
  • Formats




Citizens & Businesses




“It is the policy of the state that open data be machine readable and released to the public in ways that make the data easy to find, accessible, and usable...”






Make it Easy.





  1. Discoverable
  2. Explorable
  3. Accessible

Discoverable





Simple search and recommendations
for finding relevant data

Explorable





Right away, people should be able to
see and filter data.

Accessible





     One click download as common data
formats and developer API’s




Governments & Agencies






Make it easy.

Data and Business processes




  • The data should live where you already have it
  • "Flip a switch"
  • Customizable site that is your own


A Story




An application built by Code for America Fellows
for the City of San Francisco.

I provide maintenance support  for the software
as open source contributions.





Uses SNAP Retailer Locator data from the USDA.




As a developer, I would like:

  • Consistent API
  • Consistent data




Sustainable
Easy for Developers
Easy for Organizations
World of datasets under a common API

Where is it?
