Open Data, Open Data, Open Data

Posted on March 4, 2017

ELGL appreciates the work of local government professionals, non-profits, and other organizations committed to increasing the use of open data in local government. Special props to What Works Cities and Code for America. Much of the good work is on display for Open Data Day 2017. Quite frankly, it’s appalling that more local governments have not embraced how open data can improve the quality of services that we provide to our communities.

Open data has been a frequent topic in ELGL articles, podcasts, and events.
