Open Data Discussions Podcast: Greensboro, North Carolina

GovTech Data Stories States-Counties

September 05, 2017

For this edition of our "Open Data Discussions" podcast we hosted Jason Marshall from the City of Greensboro to discuss open data strategies in urban environments.

Welcome to the Opendatasoft Leadership Podcast Series, “Open Data Discussions”. Each month, we feature a different Open Data program around the country to discuss what has made it successful. These examples will provide insights and strategies that you can implement in your own city.

We had the pleasure of welcoming Jason Marshall, Greensboro Senior Application Developer and Open Data Program Manager, for the second podcast in our series.

Jason discussed various subjects, including:

  • - What role does open data play in policy making in Grensboro?
  • - How much time do you spend ensuring the quality of your open data?
  • - The distinctions between GIS interfaces and other data types.
  • - The "Open Gate City", Greenboro's effort to improve transparency, community engagement, and innovation through open data.
  • - The Civil Analytics Network's Open Letter to the Open Data Community.
