Somerville has launched its Socrata-powered OpenData portal, according to an announcement from the city.
The portal is designed to provide residents with data about the city's 311 system, city budget, the departments of Public Works, Traffic and Parking, and Inspectional Services, the 2011 Wellbeing Survey and the most recent ACE (Accurate, Courteous, Easy) Service Scorecard, according to the announcement.
It's the first Socrata-based open-data portal in New England, the announcement says. Other cities, like Chicago, Seattle, San Francisco and New York use the system.
You can visit the portal at https://data.somervillema.gov/.
Somerville has also scheduled a webinar for Sept. 20, at 11 a.m., to talk about the portal. You can sign up for the webinar here.
