On Wednesday, Syracuse mayor Stephanie Miner unveiled DataCuse, the city’s new open data portal.

The first batches of data released by the city address infrastructure and housing, including information about the individual property parcels in the city, properties with lead risks, vacant properties, road ratings, potholes, water main breaks, and requests made to CityLine.

The city will be releasing more data on these subjects and other topics monthly.

“Using this portal, residents, academics, and agencies will be able to access and assess data about city operations, learning more or developing their own solutions to urban challenges. This portal, and our open data policy, will make government more accessible, transparent, and efficient for everyone,” Miner said.

The open data portal can be accessed by members of the public here. 

The new tool is part of the mayor’s recently enacted open data policy, to make more data about city government operations open and accessible for the public.

The open data policy was first proposed in April.
