Next month, local technology startup Cityflag expects to officially launch a new 311 mobile application for San Antonio.
The San Antonio City Council's Governance Committee on Wednesday approved a proposal for establishing an open data program for city, county, and other local area governments.
Platforms like Strava can help city officials take a new approach to deciding where bike infrastructure should go by sharing its users' data.
CI:Now's Viz-a-lyzer allows users to explore Bexar County data across several key indicators at varying geographic levels over time.
Using the information created from the map, the Rivard Report hopes to build awareness of the current condition of cycling infrastructure.
If San Antonio is to live up to its goal of being an equitable city, openness must be reflected in the ways its leaders engage both data and citizens.
