VOTING IS OVER!
Congratulations to the winners and thank you for participating in the OpenDataRace! The contest is now finished, but you can continue to nominate data sets for OpenDataPhilly.
OpenDataRace is a contest to uncover Philadelphia-related data sets that are not yet available to the public. Non-profit organizations across the city have nominated data that would help them accomplish their missions and improve our region. Vote now for the data set that you think should be open and available. The top three data sets will earn cash prizes for their nominators and the assistance of the OpenDataPhilly team in opening the data for public use.
