Regional Open Data Programs
Tuesday, March 17, 2015 from 11:30 AM to 12:30 PM (PDT)
San Francisco, California
London, United Kingdom
As the open data movement grows and evolves, governments are thinking more strategically about how to release data sets. Because many issues, from transportation to water quality, are often addressed across jurisdictions, a regional approach to open data programs is beginning to emerge.
Join the Code for America Peer Network for a webinar on regional open data programs in Pittsburgh and Sacramento. We will learn about a partnership between the City of Pittsburgh, the University of Pittsburgh and Allegheny County organized around the benefits of a community-driven approach to open data programs. In Sacramento, we will hear about the Sacramento Area Council of Governments’ efforts to gather the region's Chief Innovation Officers and IT Managers to collaborate on a plan for rolling out open data across 28 jurisdictions.
Speakers will include:
Laura Meixell - Analytics and Strategy Manager, City of Pittsburgh
Bob Gradeck - Regional Data Center Manager, University of Pittsburgh
Joe Concannon - Data Services Manager, SACOG (Sacramento Area Council of Governments)
Maria MacGunigal - CIO, City of Sacramento
Speakers will give a short presentation, move into discussion format then take questions from the audience.
