Gov Transparency: Mayor Expands Access to City Open dataMayor Edwin M. Lee today unveiled the City’s updated Open Data Strategy to ensure City data is readily available so that entrepreneurs and residents can use it to improve services, generate jobs and economic activity and increase resident engagement and empowerment.

“Data is driving the economy of the future,” said Mayor Lee. “Our goal is to position San Francisco as a City that both feeds and participates in the emerging data economy. This updated plan will ensure a steady supply of high-quality, well-documented data but also finding new and creative ways for leveraging the City’s data. Not only will we continue to open our data so that others can create new value from it, we will continue to transform how we use data within the City to ensure our services meet the needs of our residents and businesses.”
