The City of Philadelphia manages a significant amount of data. More and more of this information is made available publicly in a push to promote transparency through what is called the "Open Data" movement.
As this movement grows, so do the possibilities for companies to use city data to grow their business, such as:
- An alarm system company using crime data to inform their outreach
- A recycling or composting company utilizing food license data
- A pest control company tracking which properties have been cited for vermin
What new uses will you discover?
Join software developers, business owners, and city officials to learn more about what information the City makes public and how open data can support businesses, too.
Admission is FREE, but registration is recommended. Light refreshments provided.
