Connect With Your Citizens

Citizens are an integral part of any government. Whether they're buying a house or wondering about road construction, Open Data allows citizens to engage with your data, and allows you to better understand what issues the community is focused on.

Leverage Your Investment

ArcGIS Open Data allows you to leverage your existing investments in ArcGIS. Because Open Data is a feature of ArcGIS Online, organizations with an ArcGIS Online subscription already have access. You'll be able to easily share the data you've collected, curated, and maintained at no additional cost.

Create Your Public Access Website

Start building an Open Data website that looks and feels just like your own website. When your website is ready, the public can freely view interactive maps and search and download data they are interested in.

You can take your open data even further by giving it purpose and context in relation to your organization's top priorities and initiatives with ArcGIS Hub.
