Pittsburgh and Open Civic Data


Terms like government 2.0 and open data have become buzzwords in discussions of public policy and governance. Collaborative approaches toward more transparent, data-friendly governance have generated steam in Pittsburgh. The Western Pittsburgh Regional Data Center (WPRDC) is a key local mode for accessing local civic data. At the grass-roots level, Carnegie Mellon University’s Students for Urban Data Systems

(SUDS) is a collaborative means by which data-focused students and community members learn and apply techniques to explore and apply civic data. Bob Gradeck, Executive Director of WPRDC and Justin Cole, Heinz College Graduate Student and President of SUDS, join Heinz Radio to discuss Pittsburgh’s local civic data scene and its potential role in reshaping approaches to public policy.
