Conducting a Data Inventory (WWC Sprint 008)


Start: August 12, 2019
Duration: 4 weeks
City data is an incredible asset, and knowing what data your city collects leads to efficiency, increases accountability, and eases citywide reporting, decision-making, and performance optimization. Data inventories are a great way to figure out what data are being collected (and if there is any duplication among departments), determine what systems are in use, promote transparency, and develop data publishing plans. In this Sprint, experts from the Center for Government Excellence (GovEx) at Johns Hopkins University will help you understand fully the importance of inventorying and the open data program, and will guide you on how to begin to inventory your city’s data.
