The OpenDataRace, a contest to show support for the release of City of Philadelphia data and the nonprofit missions that need it, has launched open voting. Technically Philly first reported on the contest here.
With an OpenDataPhilly.org registration, users can vote for a single data set — of 21 selected from more than 30 nominated — once a week through the month of October. At the end of voting, three small cash prizes will be given to the nonprofits that nominated the top data sets, and contest organizers will work with the city to have that data released.
VOTE FOR YOUR DATA SET HERE.
The OpenDataRace organizers are Azavea, which built the site, NPower, the William Penn Foundation and, full disclosure, Technically Philly.
