What is Open Data Buffalo?

Open Data Buffalo is the City of Buffalo, New York’s official open data program that makes public information publicly available for free in accessible and machine-readable formats. It is currently ranked #4 in the nation on the U.S. City Open Data Census. Open data enhances data-driven decision making, increases transparency, drives internal efficiencies, and fosters innovation. Mayor Byron W. Brown’s Civic Innovation Challenge Powered by AT&T is structured to spur this innovation by creating a friendly competition to see what is possible when we, as a city, open our data and engage the local community to develop civic technology to benefit residents.
