Open Data

While not required, teams at Startup Weekend GOV are encouraged to incorporate one or more of the available open datasets into their mobile and Web applications. All members of the public can peruse these datasets to see what’s available to work with.

The open data is available at:
Seattle: http://data.seattle.gov
King County: http://datakc.org
State of Washington: http://data.wa.gov

Don’t see the data you wish you could work with? Let us know! This weekend is a perfect time to give that feedback to the respective governments’ Web teams and other government team members who can start the ball rolling.

Feel free to get creative about the open datasets from which you draw. What other data could you mashup with the above? For example, YourEconomy.org provides additional community economic data you could use.
