The Open Indicators Consortium (OIC) is a multi-stakeholder partnership in the development of the open source platform Weave in collaboration with the Institute for Visualization and Perception Research at the University of Massachusetts Lowell. The OIC aims to spur the democratization and use of high quality data and data-driven problem-solving within and across neighborhoods, municipalities, sectors, states, regions and nations. To learn more about Weave, check out the OIC web site at and its wiki ( ), email Jim Farnam at [email protected].

Then, partners will share how they are using Weave locally to build community capacity and support their initiatives.
