This site is operated by the Center for Government Excellence at Johns Hopkins University, in partnership with Renee Sieber of Geothink, McGill University and members of the open data community. Our initial work is based upon research conducted by Rachel Bloom, and will expand to include work compiled by James McKinney and others. Categories were defined by Jury Konga. It was funded through the What Works Cities program, sponsored by Bloomberg Philanthropies. Site development by Julia Conzon and Nicolas Levy, with support from Sophia Dengo, Andrew Nicklin, Sharon Paley, and Matthew Pazoles.
