Open Data

about

We are creatives who want people, within the city and around the world, to know that DFW is a strong entrepreneurial community. We are innovators who know that with access to data, we can build amazing things for our city and for our neighbors. And we are citizens who understand that within this region, our diverse communities and ecosystems can come together to solve problems.

OpenDallas was created to promote, support, and educate the broader Dallas/Fort Worth community on how to engage with local government through the open data movement. We strive to work with publicly available data in order to allow civic-minded developers and professionals the opportunity to come together and solve big problems for the betterment of our City.

Objectives:

  • To provide a platform for cities and data aggregators to make available data and for users, developers, and engaged citizens to utilize the data for projects and platforms.
  • To host a series of open data hackathons that strive to solve problems or provide solutions that better the city by developing software tools with open data for the general public to consume.
