The City of Ottawa has introduced a new OpenData portal. This new site will improve your use and access to the City’s data sets, including the following enhancements from the original catalogue system:
- Standard and customizable RSS feeds to notify you of updates in the catalogue
- An Application Programming Interface (API) that will help users discover data as well as use the data sets
- Search and faceted search features
- Data groupings
The City is utilizing the CKAN platform, an open source data portal platform, which has a large base of government users, and which continues to grow. By choosing this platform the City will be able to leverage additional features and functionality that this development base creates, which will further improve the experience for our users.
And as always, we welcome users’ comments, which you can send to firstname.lastname@example.org.
