On one hand, open data has spurred innovative uses of government data, particularly with transit data and apps. But to expand the use and value of open data, we must go beyond mobile apps to leveraging open data as a means to inform public dialogue and decision-making in cities. Learn how San Francisco is migrating from simply pushing data out the door to enabling use of our (that is, your) data.
