Survey asks for help improving data website
Thursday, December 6, 2018 by Tai Moses
Information junkies: If you’ve never looked at the city’s open data portal, we’re about to give you an early Christmas present. The open data portal is a veritable smorgasbord of data: charts and maps, datasets on transportation and mobility, public health, housing, neighborhood planning, public safety, and much, much more. Looking for a lost pet? View a map of all dogs and cats who are currently listed as “found” in Austin Animal Center’s database. Going out to eat? Check out the health inspection score for your favorite restaurant. You can also submit a public records request or see how the city is doing with its sustainability goals. Now the city is conducting a brief, online survey to find out who’s using the portal, what their favorite sections are and how to make the site even more accessible. Take part in the survey here.
