Details About Next-Gen State of California Open Data Portal Emerge, Prototype Available
The announcement [for the new portal] came Friday, Feb. 12 from Stuart Drown, the deputy secretary for innovation and accountability from the recently formed California Government Operations Agency (CalGovOps). Drown said the initiative began in 2015 when CalGovOps experimented with the idea by launching a portal that included 11 data sets from three different departments. Following the launch was a state sustainability hackathon called GreenGov that aimed to get feedback, Drown said, adding that a prototype for the state’s portal can be found at Greengov.data.ca.gov.[Clip]
Next steps for the site are to add data sets from four additional departments by the end of February with the goal to replace the state’s aging open data site Data.ca.gov with a beta version by June.
