Supporting government transparency in Colorado
OpenColorado is Hosting Data
We chose the CKAN platform for our data catalog because it provides a lot of flexibility and very low cost. In the past, the catalog only linked to data sets that a jurisdiction hosted.
Supporting data uploads which will make it much simpler for smaller organizations to participate. At the present time we have 100GB of storage available and individual file uploads can be up to 50MB. For perspective, the City and County of Denver’s entire catalog is about 2GB, so we have a lot of storage capacity.
We’re excited to expand this data sharing opportunity to our existing partners and groups that will join in the future. This is a significant step toward expanding transparency and supporting economic opportunity through data-driven innovation.
