Expanding Access to Opportunities through Open Data
by Kistine Carolan, City Office of Innovation and Technology

"Imagine an application that can help familes find housing by the proximity of good jobs, quailty schools, public transit, and healthy corner stores.  Imagine tools that all local governments and funders to analyze community trends to make informed decisions about what interventions to prioritize.  Imagine if neighborhood residents could use data visualizations to make the case for policy changes or the need for more resources in their community.  All of these tools are actually possible through open data."
