In August, the City of Tacoma launched TacomaData a pilot program to improve access to local data through an open data platform. TacomaData can be browsed by several subject categories including Business, Infrastructure and Transportation, Public Safety, and Environment and Sustainability.
For those who enjoy mucking about with datasets will be please that data is available for download in a variety of formats. While casual will enjoy the useful statistical tables and GIS maps.
