Philly’s open data movement continued to shine in 2015.
The city’s property data release was named on a Twitter list of local open data highlights, started by D.C.-based by civic technologist Rebecca Williams. Other mentions include San Francisco’s housing data browser and Pittsburgh’s new open data portal.

Other Philly projects mentioned in that thread: the adorably-named Benny the Metadata Catalog, a new tool, and the recent property tax balance release, which full disclosure, we threw into the ring.
Here’s hoping this work continues into the Kenney administration.
