CodeAcross at TODD

Cary, NC – The three Code for America Brigades (Code for Raleigh, Code for Cary and Code for Durham) will be participating in CodeAcross 2014 in conjunction with Triangle Open Data Day (TODD) with an Open Data Catalog project. The brigades will catalog the sixteen datasets that every city should be making easily available online in machine-readable formats. The project will attempt to catalog the datasets across all the municipalities in the Triangle region.

16 Datasets

  • Budget: the city’s budget
  • Business Listings: a directory of all businesses operating in the city
  • Business Permits and Licenses: new businesses who have been issued permits
  • Code Enforcement: building code inspection data surfacing reports on particular properties from code enforcement officials
  • Construction Permits: permits related to new construction on buildings
  • Contracts: information about vendor contracts that the city has entered into
  • Crime: data about crime reports
