Of interest, we’ve worked with Shelby County, Tennessee to help standup the County’s 911 Open Data Resource.  Using ArcGIS Online, the 911 resource makes available, to both the public and developers, a number of useful data products including: emergency zones, road centerlines, address points, and more. With ArcGIS Open Data sites, you can make datasets like map features, CSV tables, or even file geodatabases available to organizations and the public. See  http://gis.shelbycounty911.org/

For existing ArcGIS & ArcGIS Online user orgs and agencies, ArcGIS Hub provides GIS admins with the capability to open their data holdings to the community as well as for citizens and developers who need data.  ArcGIS Hub walks you through launching your first open data site and recommends meaningful open datasets to share that align with commonly used open standard data models. Governments that participate get:

  • Tools to create maps, apps, and dashboards
  • An engagement platform to support collaboration
  • Ways to capture, store, and share data
  • Apps and tools (templates)

Of note: ArcGIS Open Data remains a freely included capability of the ArcGIS platform.
