Through a collaborative arrangement with the MacArthur Foundation, the Chicago Community Trust, Chicago Metropolitan Agency for Planning (CMAP), the City of Chicago, and Cook County, we are spearheading a competition that will build applications that use city, county and CMAP data to help communities become better informed.  After MCIC cleans the data, application designers will have access to the data collected by various government and quasi-government agencies about their areas.  Additionally, this work encourages the City of Chicago to publicize its data, furthering the open data movement in Chicago.
