The Site

What about personal information?

Personal information is not part of this effort at all. Only non-personal information can be publicly available and re-used to make life better for the public. In fact, local jurisdictions are going to great lengths to ensure no private information and individual privacy can ever be compromised. For example, information about where a school is located is valuable public information; who goes there is not.

Who is behind this site?

This site is hosted by Open Source Labs on behalf of a long list of local governments in the Portland Oregon metropolitan area. See the Data Providers and Sponsors pages for more information. These governments and sponsors have agreed to contribute to a prize fund to recognize and reward winning ideas and applications.
