OpenDataSoft, a private software company specialized in transforming structured data into API and visualizations, has released city-specific sites featuring publicly available data using the Amazon Web Services platform. The initiative, called Open Data America, is set to release data portals for more than 500 cities across the United States. “If you are a mid-sized city and you want to access the data, you can do that inside the platform,” OpenDataSoft COO and co-founder Franck Carassus said. “We grabbed open data from federal government, from census, anything we found interesting and exciting, in order to show how data products could help these cities with decision-making.”
