The City of Saskatoon wants you to share your input! They are looking to develop an open data program and are asking people to complete a short survey to help them meet the needs of the community.
If you’re new to the idea of open data, it’s not just for app developers and data scientists. Open data can benefit everyone in the community. After offering some data online since 2013, the City is now preparing to move into a second, expanded phase of the program.
Open data programs are about offering public data in a way that is accessible and usable for citizens, businesses and community organizations. When you add open data to the creative talent in our community, the potential for innovation is very exciting!
