About

What's Open Data Day?

Open Data Day is a collection of local gatherings of open government advocates, developers, programmers, statisticians, and citizens who want to build things with and promote the use of open data. The next Open Data Day is March 3, 2018. Stay tuned for details.

Open Data Day 2017 saw over 25 programmers, students, data scientists, and citizens working on project hacks. Teams anlayzed the relationship between university rankings and terrorism risk using a Kaggle dataset, created a Twitter content classification tool, and made a NY state restaurant health inspection web app.

New to working with open data?

See what's in the New York State and City open data catalogues, or examine state spending data at Open Book New York. For a wider selection of datasets, Kaggle Datasets is a great place to start.
