New York State’s Open NY initiative published its third report on the progress of the open data portal earlier this month. Since its launch in March 2013, state agencies have uploaded 957 data sets to Open NY, which won accolades from the Center for Data Innovation over the summer. The report highlights Open NY’s efforts to engage the open data community with contests for using open data to solve health care problems and meet local community needs.
We are pleased that, for the third consecutive quarter, the Open NY team has updated New Yorkers on the progress they’ve made. Uploading hundreds of data sets and explaining the state of the open data initiative is no small feat, and we’re excited to see this commitment from the Open NY team.
