Open Data is more than a request for government transparency and accountability, but a larger movement to educate our society through applications and analysis. Organizations around the world are sitting on treasure troves of data with enormous potential waiting to be unlocked. ArcGIS Open Data is a capability of ArcGIS Online that allows your organization to open your authoritative data to a world of possibilities, right from the source. This session will explore the features of ArcGIS Open Data and cover the steps to prepare your data for public access, organizing it in ArcGIS Online, and configuring an Open Data site. Finally, we’ll cover how to leverage this new resource and how to engage your community.
