While it is still in its infancy, this platform is part of a group of online tools that Data Driven Detroit is developing to help make data widely accessible in a reliable, convenient, and timely manner. With just a few clicks, users can search for and download available data in several different common formats for use in GIS and spreadsheet applications. Additionally, all of the data provided on the site are available through an API for integration with third party applications. This is just one more step for D3 in making data more accessible for community stakeholders, researchers, journalists, technologists, and government agencies.
Take our new tool for a spin and tell us what you think! Be sure to revisit the site periodically, we will be expanding the collection of data available throughout the beta period and beyond. We welcome your feedback, please send any comments or questions to AskD3@datadrivendetroit.org.
