City of Charleston hosts 3rd annual open data day to reinforce commitment to an open and transparent government

June 26, 2024

The City of Charleston is hosting an event to demonstrate how public data informs decision-making and to teach residents how to use our tools and data for their own projects. This will be a virtual event from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. on Friday, June 28th.

The event will include tutorials on how to access city data, show projects that address key city priorities, and share frequently requested data from residents. Various speakers from across the city will give tips and best practices for data collection and use.

In January 2021, Charleston City Council adopted an open data policy to reinforce our commitment to an open and transparent government. Since then, the city’s Open Data Management team has been annually updating a city data inventory and publishing datasets to the city open data portal.  Not all datasets are published, but the team is actively working to publish all datasets that do not contain sensitive or protected information.
