SHARE YOUR DATA

Help us solve problems in our community through data

Data, when applied, analyzed or combined, can be transformative. And it starts by bringing it all together. The more data we add to the Smart Columbus Operating System, the more opportunities we have to solve real problems felt by central Ohio residents. Anyone can submit data to the Smart Columbus Operating System. 

Use the form below to tell us about your data and how it could be used. All data submissions will be reviewed by our data curation team. They will work with you to ensure the data is current, protects individual privacy (please refer to the Data Privacy, De-Identification,  and Data Management plans), and is in compliance with Project Open Data data sharing standards, in order to maximize its machine readability and utility.

For datasets that we accept to the operating system, we’ll provide data management services including acquisition, processing, quality analysis, archival, & publishing.
