Open Data

data.hawaii.govPursuant to HRS sections 27-43 and 27-44, Open Data, a CIO priority area, includes building on established data and transparency platforms to facilitate open data mandates.

2016 Accomplishments

  • Facilitated executive branch departments’ reasonable efforts to make appropriate and existing electronic data sets electronically available to the public through the state’s Open Data Portal, which now offers charting libraries and mapping tools for the creation of dynamic visualizations. Today, 665 data sets are publicly available through the portal with 3,468,187 browser page views providing residents, analysts, and civic developers with unprecedented access to state data.
  • Collaborated with the Department of Business, Economic Development, and Tourism / Coastal Zone Management to develop the Ocean Resource Management Plan Dashboard. The dashboard is scheduled to be released this fiscal year.
  • Facilitate oversight of the State Internet Portal Program by the CIO-chaired Access Hawaii Committee by deploying a new approval process for project statements of work.
