Web Development

Colorado Data Engine is an open source hub that unlocks neighborhood scale public data in a standardized, geolocated format. You can download data sets, upload your own data, and create your own applications for the common good. By bringing together various public information sources for the first time in one, convenient on-line location, Data Engine puts the power of information to work for those who can advance change.

OMF handles maintenance and updates for the Data Engine. Since 2013 we have worked with Piton to greatly expand the public API and improve categorization of the data sets. Several new initiatives are making use of the API including the updated Community Facts Tool and Mile High United Way's upcoming Mobilize Mile High project.
