Hi everyone! We’re excited to share a few announcements about the launch of Analyze Boston, Boston’s new open data hub.

Official launch April 6

The site will graduate from “beta” status and officially launch on Thursday, April 6. That evening, we’ll showcase the new site, talk about its development, and answer questions at an event hosted by General Assembly during one of their “Talk Data to Me” events. Space is limited, so sign up now for a free ticket.

Open Data Challenge

This launch on April 6 will also coincide with a month-long event called the Analyze Boston Open Data Challenge. Individuals or teams can compete for prizes by sharing their best analyses, visualizations, models, and applications built on new and improved datasets.

Free event May 6

The challenge will culminate in a free all-day event on Saturday, May 6, at District Hall. Every Open Data Challenge participant will get first access to tickets and the opportunity to showcase their work at a panel presentation, small-group demo, or poster session. Expert judges will select their favorite submissions, and winners will be announced at the end of the day. We’ll also demo some of the site’s newest features, give a sneak peek at what’s coming down the road, and host workshops for attendees of all skill levels.

We’re looking for partners to help host the Analyze Boston Open Data Challenge event. We'll be posting an announcement about this in the coming days. In the meantime, please email analyticsteam@boston.gov if you’d like to help out, and we’ll be in touch.
