The City of Arlington has published new data on its Open Arlington webpage to serve as a valuable resource to residents and the community at large.

The City encouraged residents and stakeholders back in August to participate in a brief online Open Data survey, which received nearly 150 responses, to help prioritize the release of eight sets of data. Survey participants prioritized the release of data in this order:
  1. Libraries: Name, Address and Programs
  2. Hospitals: Name and Addresses
  3. Lake Arlington: Area and Perimeter
  4. Handitran Transportation: Number of Passengers for Times of Day
  5. Streams: name, Location and Length
  6. Arlington Municipal Court: New Cases Filed
  7. Arlington Municipal Court: Outstanding Arrest Warrants
  8. Arlington Municipal Court: Closed and Dismissed Cases

The remaining data sets will be published in the coming weeks.

If you haven't had a chance to check out Open Arlington recently, you should know we've made some major improvements this year. For example, you can find out what parks, libraries, public art or cultural opportunities are near you through the new Neighborhood Amenities app. Or get a closer look at some of our innovative Smart City projects, which include plans to test autonomous robot delivery devices on city sidewalks. Additionally, residents can learn more about water, drainage and roadway projects currently under construction throughout Arlington using the new interactive Street Tracker map.

Do you have an idea of a data set you would like to see? Did you complete a project using the City of Arlington's Open Data? E-mail us at [email protected].
