City & County of Honolulu Open Data Initiative

  1. 1. OFFICE OF THE MAYOR CITY AND COUNTY OF HONOLULU 530 SOUTH KING STREET, ROOM 300 * HONOLULU, HAWAII 96813 PHONE: (808) 768-4141 * FAX: (808) 768-4242 * INTERNET: q.honoIuIu.povPETER B. CARLISLE DOUGLAS S. CHIN MAYOR MANAGING DIRECTOR CHRYSTN K. A. EADS DEPUTY MANAGING DIRECTOR June 18, 2012 MEMORANDUM TO: Department and Agency Heads SUBJECT: Open Data Initiative The Mayors goal since taking office has been to run a more open and transparent government garnering as much citizen involvement as possible in the hopes of creating a leaner, cleaner, and smarter city that is poised for the future. We’ve done this a number of ways via our transparency web site: can-do.honolulu.gov and many mobile applications including Honolulu 311. We have been recognized nationally for our efforts. By freely sharing data amongst the citizens of the City & County of Honolulu, we hope to develop opportunities for economic development, civic engagement, and create a more informed citizen. We have the ability to do this by releasing in a centralized location many of the data sets that we have available. We encourage local developers and entrepreneurs to use that data to create web and mobile applications such as “DaBus” and to interact with the public in a quicker and more transparent manner. I, hereby, direct staff to work with the Department of Information Technology on publishing and maintaining qualified public data sets in a common-open format, which is freely available in an industry-standard model. We have attached a spreadsheet of the types of data sets we are looking to make available for public consumption. Very truly yours, c2L4 Peter B. Carlisle Mayor Attachment
