Open Data & Resources
Data is Fuel for Civic Hacking
We believe public resources including data should be open, accessible, and friendly to all residents. That means not only should residents have access to public records, but those records should be available in a way that’s easy to request, receive, read, and utilize.
Below is a collecton of open data resources we have come across as well as resources for making public information requets.
- The "Info-Activism How-To Guide"
- Open data resources published by Code for America's Kansas City Fellowship Team
- Charlotte Chamber Economic Indicators

- Charlotte Chamber Detailed Wage Rates
- Sunlight Foundation's Municipal Campaign Finance Data Guidebook
- FOIA.gov - everything about requesting data from the Federal government. Including an agency search for contact information.
