New datasets

Nothing brand new this month!

A few datasets in our pipeline to look forward to later this spring though:

  • Motor City Match and Motor City Restore program data in partnership with the Detroit Economic Growth Corporation (DEGC)
  • Web Analytics for
  • Restaurant Inspections

Existing datasets

  • Rental datasets better reflect stages of compliance:

    • Rental Registrations year to date
    • Rental Certifications year to date, meaning registered rental properties that have also been issued a Certificate of Compliance
    • Rental Inspections over all time

New tools built with open data

Last year we partnered with the Police Department to design and build a visualization tool to improve the usability of crime incident open data, especially for groups like community radio patrols who regularly analyze and track crime patterns in their neighborhoods.

Our beta release was picked up by the local media earlier this month here, here, and here.
