3d Ann Arbor Civic Technology Meetup

We're organizing a 3d Ann Arbor Civic Technology meetup, this one to be held the 4th Monday of November (11/25/13) at the Menlo Innovations space on E Liberty St in Ann Arbor.

The theme of this month's meeting is publicly available data (and what to do with it). We'll talk through a variety of sources for civic data, including government, commercial, and non-commercial sources, with a particular emphasis on civic data for the Ann Arbor and Washtenaw County area.

The working page on Arborwiki to support this is

http://arborwiki.org/Public_Data_Sources

Feel free to edit this page with data that you've found, or note at the bottom of the page things you're looking for that haven't shown up yet in useful form.

Directions to Menlo are here

and we're looking forward to seeing you!

    A quick way to start thinking about valuable open
    datasets is to look at Socrata’s Open Data Field
    Guide list of the top ten city datasets:

    1. Crime Data
    2. Restaurant Inspections
    3. Permits & Licenses
    4. 311 Data
    5. Zoning Data
    6. Property Tax Data
    7. Locations of Public Facilities
    8. Business Listings
    9. Financial Transparency Data
    10. Performance Metrics

    I've talked about this meetup at two public meetings - Ann Arbor City Council and the Ann Arbor DDA - both of which were covered by the Ann Arbor Chronicle.

    Maybe we should establish ties with Bridge to help promote open data such as that used in this report:
    http://bridgemi.com/2013/11/searchable-database-legacy-costs-in-your-community/#comment[masked] I did add a comment there that mentioned A2CivicTech.
