Open Data Discussions Podcast:  Albuquerque, New Mexico

GovTech Data Stories States-Counties

July 27, 2017




For this edition of our "Open Data Discussions" podcast we hosted March Leech from Albuquerque to learn more about this New Mexico city's open data initiatives.

Welcome to Opendatasoft's new Open Data Podcast, "Open Data Discussions!" Each month, Open Data Evangelist Jason Hare will speak to a leader from a different Open Data program around the country to discuss what has made it successful to provide you with insights and strategies to implement in your city!

We had the pleasure of welcoming Mark Leech, Technical Services Manager for the City of Albuquerque's Police Department, during our first podcast.

Mark discussed various subjects ranging from:

  • Developing a plan to address transparency most effectively;
  • Avoiding participating in the "beauty pageant" of performance management to build an effective model using Open Data;
  • Engaging a diverse audience of end users;
  • Ensuring a high data quality, why it's important, and how it can be accomplished.

Special Thanks to:

Special Guest: Mark Leech, Albuquerque Police Department Technical Services Manager
