The benefits of data

Cities across the nation are reaping the benefits of open data portals. Open data portals help customers access government data on demand – reducing the need for open records requests. Open data portals also help build trust and accountability between the local government and citizens by increasing the public’s understanding of what their local government does and the data it uses to make decisions.
