Since the Open Data team came together in August 2019, they have been working to make the best use of data across the county, to tackle some of our biggest issues, to unlock the potential of data to improve decision making and outcomes.
Open Data is important for ECC, its partners in the public sector, local businesses and citizens because it enables us to drive innovation, growth and trust across the county. Ultimately a lot of time and effort goes into producing different datasets, reports, interactive tools and by making them open and sharing them with everyone they have more use, and don’t just sit in a file forever and collect dust!
This array of data is showcased and hosted on our very own platform. Follow this link to view some of the work we have already produced https://data.essex.gov.uk/ have a browse and let us know your thoughts!
