It's The People's Data
Like other cities around the world, Santa Fe, New Mexico collects information about its roads, schools, elections, health, and other public resources. It has not been easy for the public to access this data. The Open Data Movement is a global effort seeking to deploy new technologies to bring greater transparency on behalf of the public interest and to enhance government effectiveness. Our project team applied lessons learned from open data initiatives elsewhere to gather and present sample data sets from Santa Fe via a demonstration open data portal and a data dashboard. These examples can be used by the city Information Technology and Telecommunications Department to demonstrate the potential of open data, as it works with city leaders to explore an open data initiative for the city.
