Welcome to Open Data Philly, the public portal that connects people with Philly data. Open Data Philly is a portal that provides access to data about the Philadelphia region. Most of this data is in the form of downloadable data, online apps, and Application Programming Interfaces, or APIs, which is a fancy term for data that can be used by a programmer to create a computer application program. There are other formats as well, and we use the term “data sets” to refer to any of them. Visit: opendataphilly.org
The Center for Public Interest Journalism and Next Mayor project partners will host a debate among Democratic mayoral candidates at the Temple Performing Arts Center at 5:30 p.m. on May 4th, shortly before Philadelphia’s primary election.
A newly redesigned version of OpenDataPhilly.org, the community-driven open data portal for the Philadelphia region, is now live online, thanks to a partnership which includes Temple University, the City of Philadelphia, and Azavea, a local software firm.
The Center for Public Interest Journalism today announced today it will join Philadelphia Media Network – owner of Philly.com, The Philadelphia Inquirer and the Philadelphia Daily News – and others in a foundation-funded partnership designed to support high-quality reporting on the 2015 Philadelphia mayoral campaign.
As usual, the crowd attending the annual Photo Night Spectacular packed the Pen and Pencil Club on January 21st.
And as he has for the past 12 years, Philadelphia Daily News and Inquirer photojournalist David Maialetti, seen above at right, curated the multimedia presentation, featuring contributions from the Philadelphia photojournalism community.
National Problems, Local Solutions.
The Center for Public Interest Journalism was created in 2010 to support programming and projects intended to improve the quantity and quality of public interest news and information in the Greater Philadelphia area.
