The Data & Analytics program aims to empower both officials and residents with easy access to San Diego’s data. But if people don’t know about the portal, they won’t be able to build apps, hold the City accountable, or make decisions based on data.

That’s where I came in. As a summer intern focused on community engagement, I took on the task of bringing more attention to the portal. I’m excited to share my last project: a video championing the Open Data Portal. Using concrete examples and minimal technical jargon, I hope to make the portal both comprehensible and intriguing.
