For years the District of Columbia has provided public access to city operational data through the Internet. Now the District provides citizens with the access to 501 datasets from multiple agencies, a catalyst ensuring agencies operate as more responsive, better performing organizations. Use the data catalog below to subscribe to a live data feed in Atom format and access data in XML, Text/CSV, KML or ESRI Shapefile formats. Please note that by accessing the data catalog and feeds, you agree to our Terms of Use. Please read before accessing the data. All data visualizations on maps should be considered approximate. The visualizations provided by this application include only records that can be mapped. If you have any questions or comments about the DC Data Catalog, please contact us at Visit DC FOIA page for information on FOIA requests.
