Datasets

Welcome to the CivicApps Data Catalog!

The purpose of the Catalog is to make public data easier to access, and in the process make government data more useful for everyone. The vision is that diverse and rich regional data will facilitate an unprecedented range of new information and options, enabling others to derive solutions to citizens needs.

The Catalog is unique because it includes public datasets from a wide array of local government jurisdictions. It is the only inter-jurisdictional repository of local public data of its kind in the United States, at least as far as we know. This would not be possible without data owners across the greater Portland area joining hands to make government an open data platform.

So check out the Catalog for yourself, beginning with the most recent datasets displayed first. Tell us which datasets are most important to you. If you don't see data that you think should be included, suggest new datasets via the Contact form.
