The City and County of Durham, North Carolina formed a rare “County/City” partnership to deliver a joint public-facing Open Data website. This website, the Open Durham Portal, enables citizens and other users to use a single, easy-to-use platform that surfaces the most comprehensive sets of data about the greater Durham region.
This two-government partnership delivers a better Open Data portal than either party could have done alone. The joint effort delivers data from both organizations thereby simplifying the user experience, while saving taxpayer dollars by splitting costs, sharing resources and knowledge.
This submission is on behalf of Durham County Government and the City of Durham.
