The Civic Data Alliance (CDA) is Louisville’s Code for America Brigade, and we are focused on being a force for open data, hosting hackathons, coding education, and civic engagement.
We are the public’s voice for open data, interested in liberating, improving, gathering, defining, and reporting on public data.
A few years ago, Louisville Metro government set out to increase transparency through ‘open data.’ What does this mean? Well, the short answer is that it means they released a crazy amount of data covering several government departments. However, it also means that they are providing data to nerdy people to do nerdy things with – hence, QuantifyLouisville.
