About Open Data Week

Open Data Week is an annual festival of community-driven events organized and produced by the NYC Open Data Team at the Office of Technology and Innovation (OTI), BetaNYC, and Data Through Design.

Every March, New Yorkers come together online and across the five boroughs to celebrate public data in New York City and mark the anniversary of the City’s first open data law, which was signed on March 7, 2012. Coincidentally, the first weekend of March is also International Open Data Day. Throughout Open Data Week, we rally NYC’s civic tech and open data communities and offer opportunities for more people to learn about and engage with municipal public data.

The 2024 Festival kicks off at the opening of Data Through Design‘s annual art exhibition. Throughout the week, participants can engage with NYC Open Data at dozens of virtual and in-person events. We’ll close out the week BetaNYC’s annual civic tech conference, NYC School of Data, taking place at CUNY School of Law in Long Island City.

Looking for the 2023 program? View it here. Thank you for attending, we hope to see you in 2024!

NYC Open Data Team

NYC Open Data is a free public resource with billions of rows of information about how New York City works. It is managed by the Open Data Team, which works with City agencies to make data available, coordinate platform operations and improvements, and promote the use of Open Data both within government and for every New Yorker.

The Open Data Team is part of the NYC Office of Technology and Innovation’s Office of Data Analytics.

BetaNYC

BetaNYC is a civic organization improving the lives of New Yorkers through civic technology, design, and open data. Our public programs support the use of open data and technology across the five boroughs. Our Civic Innovation Fellowship trains the next generation of civic leaders. And our Civic Innovation Lab builds solutions to data and technology needs in our communities.

We want New York’s governments to work for the people, by the people, for the digital era. Since 2010, we have called for government transparency and supported the City’s open data law and its amendments. To support this work, every year, we partner with the City to produce Open Data Week and our public interest technology conference, School of Data.
