Type Ordinance or Resolution
Year 2017
Level City or Town
State(s) Wisconsin

The city of Madison's open data ordinance allows greater public access to data regularly prepared by city agencies. City departments release data to the public through a comprehensive online portal, including property information, crime statistics, transit data, and city events. Making city data available online using open standards will make the operation of city government more transparent, effective, and accountable to the public. It will streamline intragovernmental and intergovernmental communication and interoperability, promote efficient solutions for government, advance innovative strategies for social progress, and create economic opportunities.
