Information about the City of Albuquerque's open data initiative.
The City generates many different kinds of data; ABQ Data makes this information easily accessible for public use.
The City is always looking for ways to simplify and streamline City services through technology and innovation. The idea behind open data is simple: open up City data to developers and the public to use for research and to create new applications.
Anyone can use these data sets in creative and innovative ways to improve the lives of citizens and encourage governmental efficiency. Doing this means that the City becomes more accessible, transparent, and accountable.
The City is providing these data sets in several electronic formats. They will be refreshed as new data becomes available. Metadata accompanies each set, explaining the source, scope, and currency of the data.
