Members of the public and data users are encouraged to provide feedback and suggestions on city data using our Open Data Forum.
"Transparency is a cornerstone of good governance, and it is vital for the City to be open and available to our citizens."
Mayor Michael A. Nutter
In April of 2012, Mayor Nutter established a formal open data policy for the City of Philadelphia with Executive Order 1-12. The resources listed here can be used to access open data from the City of Philadelphia, and describe the efforts we are undertaking to make more data available to the public.
To ensure that citizens and data users are aware of the open data sets scheduled for release by the City of Philadelphia, a public Trello board listing the current schedule for data releases is available for review.
The City of Philadelphia lists open data sets and other data resources available to the public on opendataphilly.org. This site is an open source project developed by local software firm Azavea, supported by the Philadelphia data community and maintained by AxisPhilly.
Version 1.0 of the City of Philadelphia Open Government Plan is available both as a Google Document and on GitHub.
The Open Data Guidebook is a document designed to assist City departments (and other government entities) in identifying, reviewing, releasing and maintaining open data sets.
