OpenDataSoft: OpenDataSoft Launches Open Data America: A Free Data Portal For Over 500 U.S. Cities. “Today, OpenDataSoft launched Open Data America, a first-of-its-kind initiative to release data portals for over 500 cities across the Unites States. OpenDataSoft’s core mission is to help governments use data to be more efficient, innovative, transparent and accountable. Open Data America was developed to give municipal officials a cutting-edge tool to help open their data, expand their community of data users and co-create innovative civic solutions.” Only cities with between 65,000 and 375,000 residents are included, so the city I’m in is too big. But this is interesting.
