FCx is a collaboration series with Code for Fort Collins where we'll dive into community-interest topics with "lightning talks" about what data are available and how the data are used to tell stories and solve problems. The talks will be followed by discussions about the topics and how else the data could be used (for example, could we use flood warning data to advise equity programs?). Come join us!
OpenData is a City of Fort Collins initiative to take transparency to the next level. The goal of OpenData is to maintain a web portal to host data sets that are available to the public in a format that citizens can easily search, filter, and utilize in innovative and creative ways. Making data available allows citizens to learn about the City, help make decisions, and be a part of creating solutions.
Governments at local, state, and federal levels are making public data more accessible than ever, hence the term “open data.” This openness allows residents greater visibility into all aspects of the City including finances, geospatial data, and a multitude of statistics. Open data is available online at any time and can be downloaded in a variety of formats.
