OPEN DATA IN PHILADELPHIA

Explore open data from the City of Philadelphia and learn more about the City's effort to make more available.

Open data is increasingly the metric by which a city’s transparency is measured. Since Mayor Nutter established an open data policy in 2012, over 100 datasets have been released, including Part I crime incidents, contracts for professional services, licenses and violations, property assessments, and bike thefts. But that's only the beginning.
