Data Sharing Hub Scheduled to launch in 2014

(Inactive) Chicago Metropolitan Agency for Planning   (Chicago)

July 2013 to June 2014

The Data Sharing Hub project has cleared the preliminary planning stage and is transitioning into an iterative cycle. Migration plans include hosting data previously shared via other CMAP platforms as well as publishing new datasets of interest to stakeholders. The project demonstrates a number of CMAP’s suggested best practices for open data in government. Municipal staff, CMAP partners and private citizens will have access to the same data simultaneously.
The website uses the CKAN 2.0 and is designed to accommodate an array of file types allowing CMAP staff to post data for discovery by anyone with access to the internet. No passwords or usernames are required to view or download the data. Users are a point and a click away from much desired data.
